Need to replace at least one, maybe both cv shafts on my 99 metro, 1.0l, 5 speed.

Would like to know what axles will work, what won't work.. ie: are manual trans and automatic s driveshafts same or different? What about a 4 cylinder manual trans vs. 3 cylinder manual trans? ABS vs non?

Also would anyone know if there is a factory service manual online for our model years? If not does anyone have the torque specs for the axle nut, ball joint pinch bolt and swaybar endlink?

95+ 3cyl 5spd is what you need. Auto is different, 4cyl is different. I believe the abs axles will work on non-abs cars. Never seen a 3cyl with abs before, but they may have made them. Use rockauto or similar site as a tool to check things like this, it works really well.

What's different about the 3 cyl manual vs the 4 cyl manual driveshafts?

I thought the transmission used on both engine was the same just with a change in the final drive ratio? Are the hub splines different for 3 vs 4 cyl cars? axle length?

Length.
The extra cylinder moves the trans over.

p.s. the 3cyl was available with abs, but it wont matter which axles you buy (unless your car is equipped with abs) the reluctor ring does not interfere with the knuckle on a non abs car.
