Alright, I got some pics of the half shafts I have, and you are right about the splines in them.

On top, 1990 MT half shafts. On bottom, 1988 AT half shafts


Splines in the MT


Splines in the AT


So it looks like you're gonna need the MT drive shafts for the passenger side. And I thought all drive shafts were the same.

What about bypassing the vehicle speed sensor when doing that tranny swap?

those pictures james just posted are correct.

i lost my digicam with all the pictures in it, but i took similar pictures.... before and after...

i had to have the bearing carrier swapped from one half shaft to the other. i had to go to a specialty driveshaft shop to get it done. was like 20 bucks to do it.

You could...but then you'll lose your variable speed steering assist...at best you'll just have a tougher time turning the wheels at lower speeds....at worst you'll have wacky steering effort at all speeds.

Why would you need to bypass it? Just wondering.

Just out of curiosity,
If I bought a 2.5l manual sedan out of a recking yard, and I have a coupe, is everything bar the ECU the same? (loom, gearbox, trans mounts?)

Mechanically the same (they'll mount). I feel like the gear ratios are different between 2.5 and 2.7 though. Wire harness is slightly different because the ECU is different. But if you're just looking at a transmission swap you should be good

2.5 gear ratios are shorter and closer ratios
