1997 Disco axle shafts in my 1995 Defender?

Hi,

I ran accross a set of axle shafts for a (automatic) Disco 1997 (NAS) with a good price (I think). Are those going to fit my (manual) defender 1995 (NAS)?
I will keep them a spares in case I break any on the trails.

Thanks,
MonLand.

I don't see why not. They are both 24 spline.

Sometimes the length of the shaft can be an issue, you need to know the length of the shaft from the drive flange to the end of the drive shaft, they aren't always the same. Classic Range Rover shafts won't fit in an early 90 as I found out the length is slightly diffferent, it's not just the number of splines that you need to consider.

mike-
do you know which ones/years are shorter/longer? that's the first time i've heard anyone make a mention of 24 spline shafts being different lengths. all my experience stateside is once everything changed (specifically rears) to 24-spline in mid-93, all the housings, shafts, 3rd members, etc are the same in 90s, RRCs ('mid-93 to 95), and Disco 1s.

were the RRC shafts you had problems with front or rear?

Near as I can tell the 24 spline shafts on all coiler LR diffs fit each other ... Hmm i would be interested to know about any differences since i try to sell upgrade shafts for these axles and haven't heard of anything different.
In this case though the 97 Disco shafts will absolutely fit your 95 90... Why not save you $$$ and get some un (well within reason)breakable ones?

Sorry, I may have caused confusion. I was just saying that they might be different lenghts.
I know for sure that you can"t put Classic Range Rover shafts in a drum braked 90 axle or vice versa from experience having swapped a drum braked 90 axle and case for a disc braked Range Rover axle. The shafts looked about the same at a casual glance but the lenghts were far enough out to mean that the shafts weren't interchangeable
