Hey all, I need your help I was wondering if you guys knew what axle setup works with the e56 trans in a 6 g celica... I recently snapped my driver side shaft and can't find a replacement, I've tried the v6 Camry but the 6 bolt inner doesn't work with my e56 inner stub. Is there a LSD e series inner hub with 6 bolt that would match the Camry replacement axle?

I don't see why ST204 outers wouldn't work with the E56 inners? The transmissions came in the ST202 standard, so I would think that your standard US axle assemblies would work with just the inners replaced. The lengths should all be the same.

Good point blood money, I ordered the standard gt axle I plan on changing the inner with my old joint and reboot it, I'll update the thread if it was successful.

You can't simply swap the inner cv joint, the axle shaft split e is completely different turns out I need the exact jdm axles, anybody have any other ideas.

It shows that the driveshaft on the ST202 is the same as the Carina ED GTi. That is the drivetrain I had in my celica and I was able to use US S54 axles (not just inners or just outers but the entire axle).

the s54 axle you used what car was it off of? 6g celica gt? In this link provided my axle is on the right while the gt s54 axle from a celica is on the left, this is the difference in the inner of my e56 trans and why its hard to find the correct shaft that will spline into the e56 lsd trans.

I have bought a 96-00 manual 2wd axle off a RAV4 it looks identical, all I would have to do is make the splines longer on the trans inner side to suit/match the original longer splines of the trans, I will document all this in case it works to help others dealing with this problem.

Hmm... no clue. Guess I might have just had an S54 instead.

Ended up buying jdm mr2 LSD inner axle stubs and using the common st185/ camry v6 axles, bolted up great. Now if they break again, a trip to the local auto part store and done. It also helps that the st185 axles are thicker!!

Sweet. Glad you found a work around.
