Default Axle Interchange....

Will a 10-14 rear axle fit an 05-09?

I knew my car was hit before I bought it but after seeing the alignment today there's one degree of toe out on the rear wheels.

The left rear was -1.4 deg and the right rear was at +.4 deg.

It's the same axle, no difference in the mounting.

Are you sure it is straight? If it is used and off a wreck maybe it is twisted.

The axle shaft was replaced and it explains the difficulties I had with installing the watts link.

The right rear had no camber so the hit probably came at an angle from the front

Although you replaced the axle shaft, it is possible that the axle tube itself is bent or twisted. That could account for the difference side to side.

Most likely the axle tube.

Yeah that's what I figured. The car was wrecked and fixed before I bought it. And when I seen how the left rear tire was wearing slightly more on the inside I had my suspicions. Looks like I'll be replacing the entire housing in the near future.
Makes sense with all the clearance issues I had with the watts as well
