Question for Max...or anyone else that may be able to answer

On a 92 d30 axle are the axleshafts on the left and right the same? if i have a spare shaft from the left side can i put it on the right side. it has the hole that the nipple on the intermediate shaft slides into but are there any other differences?

I wouldn't think that the same shaft would work for both sides. The diff is not in the center.

I think the right side is a two piece shaft that slides over and connects when you put it in 4WD. The left is just a one piece.

That is correct. The passenger side, because of the vacuum system, is two pieces. The pumpkin is offset towards the drivers side, so even if you wanted to convert to a one-piece shaft, you'd still need a longer shaft.

In short, it won't work.

ummm....ok maybe i did not word this right.

the drivers side has a stub shaft that goes through the hub assembly and connects to an axle shaft that goes to the diff. t

the passanger side has a stub shaft that goes through the hub assembly with an axle shaft that goes to the vaccuum disco, and then connects to the intermediate shaft.

the collar attaches the passanger side axle shaft and the intermediate shaft....

i want to know if the axle shafts that connect to the hub assemblys are the same for both sides....i have a spare that i know for a fact came off of the drivers side, but it too has the hole on the spline end that would slide into the nipple on the end of the intermediate shaft at the vaccuum disco.

No they are not the same.

In your D30 the only axle shaft parts that are the same are the stub shafts.
The other 3 axle shaft parts are all different.

The passengers side one looks like this.



Drivers will look like this.



Note the difference in the diameter of the ends of the two shafts.
The drivers side is normal 27 splines where it engages with the differential.
The Passengers side if MUCH larger. This large section is where the CAD collar engages and joints the intermediate with it.
