Ive heard and read that either the drivers or passengers side cv axle is shorter than the other on the end that connects into the differential...this pair seem to be the same? Is that correct?
Ray M July 18, 2016
These will be specific left and right sides. People might be referring to the stub shaft, which will be a separate part that connects some CV axles into the differential.
