2 basic questions. First, I have a 2001 5-speed manual. I don’t have to worry about this extra “stub shaft” part I keep hearing horror stories about, do I? I expect to not encounter any C-clips, snap-rings or anything other than the 2 axles down there when I pull them out. Right or wrong?
Second - I also keep hearing conflicting info on whether I will need an alignment after I am done. Need as in required, not optional, must-have, not should-be-done, or you probably should. I guess it differs from model to model depending on what was disconnected.
