For anyone who has installed the 1LE axles, is there a washer on the outboard side that goes between the CV joint and hub? The service manual discusses replacing a washer, and adding one if it wasn't there before. This is from the SS manual though.

No difference in splines.

Ed is probably correct. There is no difference in splines or diameter on the hub side with the 1LE axles. I took my old hub and slid it on with no problem on the drivers side. As for the hubs, if it wasn't for a different part number on the box, you can't tell physically just looking at the outside they are different. So has to be internally with the bearings. The housings are identical.

The obvious differences on the driver's side axle is the size of the outboard CV joint. 1LE is 1/2" larger in diameter, same spline count on both sides and diameters are the same as the stock SS. Differences in thread length where the axle nut connects. Didn't check if the thread size was the same; I might run back to the shop tonight and check.

I wouldn't call the splines "totally diff." Same diameter shaft, same spline count and they fit the SS hub.

As for the washer I'm referring too, you can see it next to the CV joint in my picture in this thread. The SS axle is the bottom one. The washer as it is referred to in the service manual is slightly pulled away from the CV.
