Here is where we are with our STI 180. We bought a set of axles for the STI. We plan on modifying the outer end to work on the Datsun 510/240. We will shorten the axles and weld on the matching Datsun flange. The diff will use the Subaru stub axles. We have everything to do it but just do not have the time. We will be ready for the 2010 season, however.

Wouldn't it make more sense to respline the axle to fit a CV joint?

I guess it depends on OUT and IN. We can do the lathe work and welding (IN) but we cannot due resplining (OUT). Your call.
