    I suspect so because I think (think!) they switched genders. One way to find out is to try and "order" axles for both cars and see if the part numbers are different.

    dam!!!! ok well looks like its back to the lab again.i know they changed in the later model but im not sure about the early models.both of mine are early models.so i was hopin everything would work.my 04 project was lost due to failed factory brakes. and the tranny and engine are great still i would just do a whole swap but the engine in my 02 is complete stage 2 so im tryin to make the 04 tranny work.is it hard to switch out axle shafts and running gear?

    If you want to swap a later model trans into an earlier you will need the front axles, the 04 trans has axle stubs.
