Default 93 LE axle shaft help

so.... I got a 93 LE and i'm told I have to use ABS axles but wondering if I can use other years or if I'm fucked and I have to bite the bullet and rape my own wallet.

i'm on that college broke *** life so funds are scarce

not sure what the compatibility is aside from 90-93 and 94-97

OR where i can purchase these used and in good condition. I just need another set to last me till I can save up enough money for my torsen swap but my yata says otherwise

What's the issue? They rarely go bad.

they are popping bad, first and second gear at like 1/2 throttle pop loudly from both sides :[

the boots are blown from both ends on both sides. essentially i need to replace them but finding them for abs is kind of a bitch

You might be able to pop the abs ring off the axle you have now and onto a non-abs axle. Google around to see if anyone has actually tried it.

I also heard that. I haven't had time to try it due to finals but as soon as I can I'll be taking it apart.

Btw, getting the axle out of the upright can be a big project, especially in areas with rust/humidity. Gird yourself.
