Searched to no avail. crx axels and clutch cable in sedan?

So a member on here has offered me axels and a clutch cable from his crx but I can't seem to find anything on here mentioning comparability. Id be forever grateful if anyone could help me out. Going to go search about some more.

They re the same. They will fit just fine.

Did some searching on part numbers. Seems there are different spline counts and such. This makes me feel a lot more confident. I'm just worried that a different year it model will be slightly different. Any truth to that?

With CRX's I know there are differences between models (Si,DX,HF). I think the Hf has a smaller axle than the DX and Si. The sedans fortunately enough have that same axle sizes as the Si CRX. Except for the EX all the sedan models even have the same front brake discs and knuckle size as the Si's. While the EX has bigger discs it does retain the same spline count as the Si CRX.
Hope any of that helps.

He says the axels are from an 89 si. That means by your info they should bolt right up Smile

So my outer driver side cv boot leaked all the grease out. Could I just buy a new boot and regrease the joint?

they all fit inside the tranny. thats for sure

only the HF (crx) and std (hatch) are different on the spindle side,
they're like two splines smaller.

Okay this is great info. Very helpful. My last question is is even if the axel knocks on sharp turns, can I regrease it and replace the boot instead of the whole unit or ammo fucked. I suppose I wi t know until I tear  it apart, but I can't have the car down for more than a day. So its gotta be one or the other.

At the point in which the axle cup starts to clatter the damage has been done. You'll either need a new cup to rebuild or just get a warranted one from the local auto parts store. I go with the latter choice myself.

I've got a line on two axels from a crx si for the cost of shipping. And since I need to put a new throwout bearing in my car, might be the way to go. Or should I just buy the new axel and call it good. Btw if the bearing makes noise when the pedal is not touched but goes away when the clutch is disengaged, that's my throwout bearing, right?

Most likely

Alright. I want to tell you guys how much I appreciate the help. These issues are minor but are a huge stress for me. Knowing what's wrong helps greatly in knowing where to spend wehat little money I have to keep her on the road. So thanks from the bottom of my heart, truly.

I could say almost 99.9% that you have a bad throwout if you engage the clutch and the noise goes away. But it should also make noise when your in gear as well.

The noise is there when i'm in gear just gets drowned out by road noise.

Yea thats a throwout for sure I just kept an ear on the noise level over time cause it slightly got louder over time.

Hell it got louder over the weekend and now shifting into fifth has become harder. Sometimes it doesn't go in at all and I gotta pump the clutch a couple times then try. Drivable but I don't want to hurt the tranny.
