I've been looking for options to convert to all wheel disc. I am a level 1 working mechanic.

As far as I can tell, the Mazda 3 and focus frames and suspension components are identical, except the knuckles, bearings, hubs and axles. I am also not sure of the spacing between the transmission and hubs. Can anyone tell me what needs to be done with the axles to make them work? Can we just not use Mazda axles? Or do we need to use inner focus axle and swap the outer Mazda axle to it? This I can do if needed.
