Boxster drive axle

I have a 2000 Boxster Base 2.7 5-speed manual. Are the drive axles different part numbers from the Boxster S 3.2.
Can Boxster S 3.2 6-speed manual axles be used on a Boxster base 2.7 5-speed manual.

And where is the best source for buying axles.

Thanks
VT

5-speed and 6-speed axles are different. i've had bad luck with aftermarket axles. try woody or ebay for a low-mileage used oem axle.

The 6 speed axles are different but all 1997-2002 5 speed axles are the same. I don't have any manual axles

I went down this route when my axles (2000 S 6 speed) were venting liquified grease out the axle vent hole due to to heat. Ultimately I uninstalled the axles, cleaned out the old grease with Kerosene and the acetone, and repacked with Redline CV-2 grease and new axle boots, and have had no problems since. If your axles are not clicking and/or obviously ruined, just rebuilding your existing axles might be the best bet?
