    ok, im putting a B16a2 into my 97 ex. the passenger side fits fine, but the driver side axle is about 2.5 inches too short..

    are ls axles longer? i got axles from a 2000 civic SI, and i thought they would work. but apperantly not.. how do i check to see what kind of intermediate shaft i have?

    I have the exact same problem with my b16a2 into my eg, it is okay to leave it how it is, but you need the integra connection shaft between the axel and the transmission its a bit longer... that will fill the gap, my car drives just fine no problems

    and unless you have a lsd, the drivers side axel is pretty much useless haha

    i dont think so, i got a axle from a 95 gsr w/ abs, fits perfect. and i would not trust driving on my axle when its about to come out. as soon as you make a hard turn it would pop out...

    i know the half shaft lengths are different for an integra and a Civic si.. that could be the problem

    Well its not a big enough gap that the axel is going to pop out, my car is quick and I wont leave it permanently like that, just saying its okay its not causing problems but i will have an axel soon from an integra to fit that, Im not saying to leave it like that but your fine to drive if needed on that short axel, its only about an inch to half inch gap for my eg hatch and I have a b16a2

    not being a dick but me and you have two toatally different situations, my axle was short almost 2 and a half inches.. and you told me is was fine for now. thats why i said no. now i see a half inch, but not 2 and half. and i know the shafts are different sizes. but i got it figured out, thanks anyways
