Hi, I'm just wondering if anyone knows the differences in length between the Corsa B and C, if there is any at all?

think they are slightly longer on the c, the conversion shafts for 2.0L are longer on a c anyway.

Thanks very much!

Don't suppose you know roughly, even a ball park figure, how much by?

Mmmmmm, they can't be far off the size of Astra GTE shafts so.

Thank you kind sir, that's just opened up a world of opportunity. Cheers Pal.

no problem
I used a Vectra b off side shaft and corsa b 2.0L nearside shaft on my z22se conversion as it all sits a lot further to the nearside.
so many parts out there if you know where to look

And the Vectra B shaft worked alright for you? As you say there are so many combinations there's bound to be something factory to work, Corsa C 5 stud hubs are s huge starting point so the DS Shaft is all that's needed now.

To be honest, I don't know. I have a Corsa B with an x25xe running F20 and shafts and I've a Combo C running an x16xe but I'm trying to figure what it'd take to run either on a 4cyl big block on 5 stud or what it's take to run a small block Corsa B on 5 stud. I'm gonna assume an F17 might do that job but more homework needed.
