Can anyone tell me the difference between the 90-93 and 94-97 front and rear uprights (spindles). I am building a new car out of parts from several donors. The tub is a '95, I think the rear uprights are from a '93, I have fronts from a '90 and a '93. Can I use these parts, or do the not interchange? Thanks Tyler

Fronts should be the same. ABS was available in 1993 so the bosses Steve mentions would be on those uprights. I think all rears 90-97 are the same, but there are different size axles in the 94 up 1.8 cars and I believe there are different bearings for them. if you have a 95 tub you need the 1.8 stuff.

FRONTS 90-93 non ABS are all the same 93 ABS is the same except, has the bump and drilled for sensor 94-97 are geometricly the same as the ABS cars except the holes are not drilled, unless ABS equiped 99+ are different than early cars, require the 99+ upper arm if installed on an early car.
Rears 90-97 cast uprights are the same geometry except for the ABS holes are drilled in ABS cars 99+ cast uprights give the additional 10mm of track width. 90-05 rear bearings are all the same. 90-93 rear hubs (the part with the studs) are all the same and use the small knurl lug studs. 94-05 rear hubs are the same as early cars but with the larger lug stud hole.
AXLES 90-93 2 piece design, only for use with small 1.6 diff 94-95 1.8l, 2 piece design, looks like 1.6 axles but are not interchangable 95-05 one piece design can be interchanged with the the 2 piece design Mazdaspeed turbo cars use a larger inner spline. Requiring special axles. They also use a larger outer joint that requires the removal of the wheel bearing seal

Does this mean the 94-97 uprights are geometrically the same as the 90-93 uprights?
