I am in the middle of a northstar swap. I have one quick question regarding the axles. Ive tried using the Northstars tripods, but the splines are different than the fieros. Any ideas on what will work ?

The Axle shafts are both the same They are from a Beretta or Grand Am V6 4spd auto trans. I think they are the left side but I am not positive. They are the shortest GM axle shafts ever used. Mine came from a 96 beretta and the other side came from A1 drive shaft.
The Tripod The outer portion came from a 4T80E. I think they came out of a 97 Seville. They had square sliders instead of rollers The inner tripod came from a 90 Deville. They again were slider type. This fits the Beretta shaft.
