I bent the axle on my 2000 v6 stang. I bought a whole diff from an auto recycler but the guys gave me a diff that has abs and mine does not. I only want to swap the shaft. Anybody know if i can install this shaft with abs. Basically all i need to know is if the spline in the diff is the same and if i have clearance from the gear on the back of the hub. These guys at the auto recyclers have been messing me around and i really don't feel like waiting another day or two to get this part, thanks.

Yes, I have done it dozens of times. And sometimes buy axles that come WITH the abs tone ring, just knock it off with screwdriver and s small hammer i a bunch of small taps, going top bottom right left until it pops off, then pop it on new, start with small light taps until your sure it's in and keep it straight.

Also, a lot of times in your case you can just leave the tone rings inn of there are no obstructions! Good luck!
