I know how to use the search function and I'm aware it's been posted a hundred times but I'm still a little confused. I'd like to collect all the necessary parts to complete my swap before I start and I have not found a clear answer on axles, maybe there is none? It's a 87 GT using a 4t65e hd auto and a supercharged 3800 from a 2001 Bonneville and all WCF mounts and brackets. My Fiero axles are gone, all I have is the Bonneville axles. Can someone tell me what else I need to make this work. Thank you...

Isn't it strange that after a bombing, everyone blames the bomber, his upbringing, his environment, his culture, his mental state but … after a shooting, the problem is the gun?

auto axle only works for some mountings. Did not work with WCF mounts that center the power train. My axles are about the same size . I believe that they are Transport Van axles bars with manual Fiero outer cups and Grand Prix inners tripots
I just measured up and went over to the axle shop.-done!

Did you use WCF mounts? What did you use on the drivers side?

Worked on every swap I have done using WCF mounts along with PR/FieroX mounts. Never had any issues with any figment issues at all.

The auto axle will fit in the drivers side but it was about 1/2" too short. IMO that can make for a broken cup with a hard launch.l lots of swaps have used them but the loose fit is concerning plus the,axle bar is of a,smaller diameter. . Maybe I like to cut it a bit too fine but that's the way I've always done things.

Many many hard launches on the setup in my car and others with no breakage or any other issues...Setup works fine but everyones thoughts and processes e different so I understand where u r coming from.
