Hi all,
Does anyone know the weight of an AE86 complete rear axle (LSD, driveshafts, etc).
Cheers

I know for a fact that the complete diffhousing with a TRD LSD weighs 21kg. And the axle itself doesn't bearly weigh anything, can easily pick it up with one hand. As for the rest I have no clue, could maybe weigh it next time I'm down there.

Ok so I was down at the garage today, but forgot to bring a scale Banging head so I had to use the highly accurate method of lifting stuff with my hand and guess. Given that I know what the diffhousing weighs I'd say that a complete rear axle weighs around 50kg.

I'd expect it to be more than 100 kg's.. I can lift a 4age with ancillaries by myself.. a rear axle is heavier than that for sure.

Empty axle is like 30-40kg, heavy but liftable.
shafts, bearings, diff, brakes.. i think it puts it to 70-80kg area.
