Hi,

I'm building a Corsa C gravel rally car in Australia.

I'll be running the 1.8 Astra F (or as they are called in Australia a TR Astra) hub and the F20 side gears in a F17CR gearbox.

These both take the larger inner and outer CV Joints.

Looking at some parts catalogues show that the 1.8 and 2.0 have different part numbers for the whole shafts, but take the same inner and outer CV's. I think that the 2.0 might be longer.

Does anybody know why there is a difference? and what one would be the better to use?

Thanks in advance.

Michael

I thought they were identical all big blocks?

I've ran a Vectra B on my Isuzu (1.7TD engine fitted to MK3 astra) and my GSI..... my Isuzu didn't have ABS but shaft fitted no issues, maybe the part no.s you're looking at is for a driveshaft with an abs ring? Other without? Just a thought.

The shafts I've ran were listed 1.8/2.0 Vectra Bs.

Just an update. Contacted supplier and there is an error on their catalogue. 1.8, in Australia at least, run smaller inner CV joint and larger outer. 2.0 runner larger inner and outer CV joint. This now makes sense.
