    I just found this thread. Yeah fuck the god damn trolls here.

    I'm glad I could help you with the driver's side axle, Milky cuz I too have to give you a shoutout :bowdown: for helping me with the passenger side axle. I was using the 05 Matrix axle for like a year because I didn't want to tap the block for the intermediate shaft. Well, I blew a wheel bearing on that side and then I realized that the Matrix has a different hub shape where the bearing seals up so it wasn't sealing right and kept damaging my bearings. I finally went Googled your thread I think with the fucking trolls and all and got the 7th gen Celica axles and paid a shop $120 to tap the block for me. The intermediate shaft really makes a difference in controlling the torque steer I love it!

    I had no idea you had yours done before me that sounds like a lot of research. I went back to Dr. Tweak in 2011 because my 5 speed was going out and he came up with this. I also went from a 3spd to a 5spd and now 6 spd.

    Here in the Philippines our AE111 has a 4afe engine when we change the engine into a 2zzge the celica axle fit bolt on but it needs 2 inches more.
    My question is what axle can I use? or do I need something like a combo axle?
    What combo axle should it be?from what toyota vehicle?

    Thanks.

    If these are bolt on for ZZE110 will this also be bolt on on an AE111?
    I researched over the internet and they said "2zz inner and 1zz outer." this is for a 2zzge swap on AE111.
    I don't know from what car that has a 1zz axle both left and right and the dimension for it thats why I don't want to purchase another set of axle.
    Also the not sponsored shop told me the left axle from a celica 2zzge didn't fit but the right axle from a celica 2zzge fitted bolt on.

    Yep, they are freaking pricey.

    Besides ebay, newcelica, spyderchat and new matrix/corolla forums are a good place to hunt.

    That sucks it's crazy the price difference Btwn buying parts for a corolla and a civic. I paid 1200 for my new motor at a local junk yard, you can find honda motors all day for 500 or less. Transmissions for a honda are dirt cheap but not these things lol but hopefully I can find a celica with a blown motor that somebody is parting out and pick it up cheap.
