    if you were at the car why didn't you just put it into gear?!?!?!
    if it has 5th then its a five speed, this also works with the tranny out of the car

    but you can shift it by hand with just the piece on the trans...

    and you should always try and shift it by hand to make sure its not rammed and jammed into a gear...

    your HF axles are fine - no difference at transmission end on DX,Si or HF - only difference is at the hub end on the HF
