Do not use tegiwia shafts Two people on here have used them and they are short I think. I would buy the dss 2.9's that are for sale and sort out the cv joints. Cheap and strong.

I can't seem to find any of those circuitworxs hubs for sale I don't think they are in production anymore. I think I will be going for R Motions

Bit of an old thread but my question fits into here, better than making a new thread..

I have read that I can use base integra dc5 axles (because they're 32mm) on my ek4 because they are also 32mm hubs. However the only thing I have to 'switch' are the inner joints. Now, what do they mean by 'switch', am I just switching the drivers side and passenger side inner joints around? Information found here

These are type r axles but just to use this picture as a reference, what must I do with them to make them fit on a kswap civic?

(The inner joints are on the left of this picture, correct?)


Thanks in advance

im pretty sure you have to swap the outer joints , not the inner
Yeah I think, if you are using k series axles then you would swap the outer joints to fit onto the civic. And vice versa ..
Anyways, found a cheap shipping route so I'll be getting axles from ktuned. Does anyone know if the intermediate shaft is included with the axles from ktuned/hybrid racing ?

No mate half shaft won't come with them.

What I have on my DC2 is EP3 shafts with the inner cups swapped around (really easy), and then some 32mm (DC2/EK/EG) outer CVs. No issues or vibes at all.
