    It dependes on what trim your car is.

    DX/SI - LS axles will work (if using the LS half shaft).
    HF - LS axles will not work, you need to swap to either DX or SI hubs.

    If its an SI or HF look on the intake manifold and it should say "PGMFI" which means its multipoint fuel injection. If it doesnt say PGMFI then its most likely a DX. Ill get pictures of the DX v. SI/HF engine bay.

    if the axles fit it is either
    -si
    -dx

    if they axles don't fit, it is std(i have std and you need new hubs for it because the axles are much larger)

    you can see the difference here:
    [​IMG]

    the top axle is my STD(4 speed) axle and its spline on the end where it goes through the hub is marginally smaller.
    my stock hubs have been replaced with JDM siR brakes because of the larger size and the larger hub

    Im sorry, I just realized that your car has an LS in it. So the previous post is worthless, Im sorry. Anyhow if it was an STD then its axles are ok, you dont need to swap hubs from a DX or SI unless you want too.

    then you prolly have to change out the hubs to SI or DX hubs if a 90-93 integra axles dont fit in the hub side. go to the junk yard or order new ones from auto parts store/honda.

    i am in the process of doin the same thing. Ok first off stop freaking out i am only here to help. :D secondly your hubs might not need changed if the swap has alreadly been completed. Did you try to put your stock teg axels in??? :blink: if so and they didnt fit through the hubs--- get new ones off of a 88-91 civic/crx si or dx they will work since the spline is larger and has a different count. Help?? ;)
