I sounds like you used a CRV trans? You but just wanted to make sure I wasn’t assuming. Any idea if an element trans can be used? Or is there a difference?

So, the front right axle and rear diff blew up the other day... replaced the front axle, pulled a new diff from an 02 CRV, slapped that in, and now it appears that power is only going to the front wheels. It used to really grab the road before, but now when you start slamming gears the front spins like crazy and it pulls to the right pretty hard. Any thoughts?? Everything is the same, except the new diff and axle up front

How is your fluid level? Is the rear diff making any noises?

I believe that the 02 Crv rear diff functions a certain way.. From my understanding, the rear diff will engage when there is not enough traction in the rear. Therefore, IF your rear diff is not engaging, it could mean you have plenty of traction in back and the diff won't engage until it passes that threshold.

That or your tires are bald up front.

Hello all, read through this to get an idea of what i may be looking into.
Literally just picked up an 02 rsx on trade for a frontier i had that i wasnt using. The pictures arent working as a few others have said. I was thinking of getting into a 3gste toyota awd swap. Im sure more work would be required but i cant imagine anyone having done it yet. Ill be researching to see what, If anything i can find. Any points in the right direction would be appreciated. Thanks!
