    I just swapped an f20b with a t2t4 lsd 5 spd trans in my 2001 Accord Coupe that was an Auto. My question is about the driver side axel. I just bought one that is for a 97-01 prelude & it seems too tight. It measures 22 7/8in. I was looking and saw the 92-96 prelude cv axel is 23in. But it doesn't have the abs. Is there another option? Plus I doubt an 1/8th of an inch is really gonna make a difference.

    Try a accord half shaft and axle

    I just checked eBay the f20b uses same shaft as h22 and has a male input for the cv I would go f23 half shaft with f23 cv this should fix your issue

    The f23 doesn't have a half shaft if I'm not mistaken. I may be mistaken though.

    Use the accord axles and yes, you are mistaken.

    The cv axel for the accord has a male connection for the "f23 half shaft" I need a female. Preludes have the female connection, but they are too short. If you have a link that would give me what I need. That would be cool....

    *update* the driver side cv shaft from an 02-06 CR-V fits perfectly on the obd2 f20b half shaft. Just the right length.
