    Hey guys,

    I am in a big rush this week (getting ready for Drift fest 02), and I am looking some quick help..... I dont have time to be doing unnessary jobs, trying differant things etc....

    Anyway,
    What I am needing to know, is if RA60 Celica drum brake axles, can be used in a Corolla T series?
    I will be using a TRD 2way, so I believe I might need to cut a small amount off the axles, thats no biggie, but i am not sure if the axle collars/bearings etc are compatible.....


    Muchly appreciated

    If you mean a complete A60 rear axle then yes it can be used if you weld on mounts to suit your car.
    If you wanna install a LSD then remember it has to be for Zenki-type, and as you said, shorten halfshafts.

    But if you mean use drum brake halfshafts into AE86 Zenki diff I really dont know and would like to know as well as I am facing similar logistical issues in getting cheap replacement halfshafts!

    Yes everything works fine. They just need 10mm trimmed from the end (not because of the LSD thing, but RA60 axles are just 10mm longer than T18 axles). So:

    1 - Pull out RA60 axle at wreckers
    2 - Trim 10mm off the end
    3 - Install into your T18 housing
    4 - ???
    5 - Profit
