There is a good chance many if not all aftermarket axles have the ABS reluctor ring (that way they don't need to make two different parts).

They will all fit into your transmission or onto your intermediate shaft regardless of trans type or brake equipment

--The axle shaft itself is 23mm thick for 91-93. It is 24mm thick for 94-02.
This goes for ALL the axles. ABS made no difference here.

The outer CV joint is where the most debate seems to happen.

--91-93 has a smaller spline diameter requiring the 91-93 wheel hub when using these.

--The 94-02 have a larger spline diameter, requiring the 94-02 hub.

Axles are not transmission specific. They are the same whether auto or manual transmission.
Generally, the right (passenger) axle for cars that came with steel wheels is the one most likely to break. These came with a rubber balancer to dampen vibrations on that side, apparently. Water and salt tends to collect under this, weakening the axle. If pulling from a junkyard, grab an axle from a car that came with alloys that does not have this ring. I never noticed a difference

see post 5 for how to select a good JY axle

Default Re: S-Series Swap Guide

I'm curious about Ignition Control Modules for my 97 SL2 DOHC. Any idea what years and models will interchange, or pretty much most of them?

GM Parts Pros site shows the OEM number for my car is 19178836 but if you scroll down, this number also fits 98-02 SC1's (no mention of any other SL cars!). Weird. But not to out of the question since the one I picked up from the junkyard the other day was indeed off an SC1.

I'm just curious if the ignition module from pretty much ANY SL2 will interchange and have the same pins.

Thanks.

2001 SC1
Default Re: S-Series Swap Guide

Bumping:
I'm about to put a junkyard engine I rebuilt in.

Is it possible to drop it in with the intake manifold already on?

I think it is, right? but I'd like to hear from some who have done it.
I know I can put on later too.

Gonna keep exhaust manifold off til it's in.

Edit:
Answered my own question. (Intake can go on first.)
