  • S15 ABS flange in a S14 non ABS

    So my rear flanges arrive with ABS ring on them. I'm installing a S15 HLSD in my 96 S14 and picked these up although when I bought them I didn't see the ABS ring. Will these work with my set up ?

    As long as those are really S15 HLSD stubs they'll work fine. The ABS rings won't do anything but they won't get in the way either. If you don't want them on there and can get them off without damaging them I'll take them

      yeah, the tone rings just come off with a gear puller. No big deal and don't get in the way.

        they're made of soft metal- be careful removing them if you want to use them later. When I pulled them off my spare stubs, I used a gear puller and dinged the edge on a couple of the teeth. I files the tops off them and they should be okay, but it's something to keep in mind.

          Standard S15 halfshafts do not have the rings. 15s take speed and ABS feeds off the nose sensor.

          If you're concerned they may not be for an S15, compare the total length as a starting point. There should be an 8mm difference between the two.

          Be aware what is marked for the right side needs to be used in the left side and viceversa for any gearset ratio of 4.08 and above.

            well, reading that these don't come with abs rings doesn't make the belly feel any better. Maybe these are spec R or something.lol anyway I know the parts numbers on the box are right. I guess the only way to find out is to see if they fit. part numbers I have on the boxes are 38220-29U60 and 29U61.

            Thanks for the heads up on reversing them.

              A google search should show you how many splines are supposed to be on each shaft. I know one is slightly longer than the other as well. Mine didn't have ABS rings either.

                  I called the shop where I got these from. Nismo changed part numbers from 38220- 4P060 to 38220-29U60. They are standing behind the part number. Measured mine and I have a 30 spline with diameter of 1.21 which is about 31mm. I am good to go I think. Thanks everyone for the help.

                  info about diameters and lengths

                    30 spline and 31mm is the right size. There are several other Nissan diffs that use that spline with a 3x2 bolt, but they're all long/short VLSD type.

                    Never knew about the method for long side / short side for 4.083. I always just installed the center section and measured the c-clip depth and matched them up.

                      It makes the S15 centre pretty much a universal fit in all S and R series Nissans because they all use an internal 8mm spacer that changes side with ratio.
