what i plan on doing is getting a 31 spline carrier from an explorer/f150 and some 94-98 31 spline axles and be done with it. No need for an expensive aftermarket posi unit when ford makes a great unti

Then get some Moser 28 spline axles, they aren't unbreakable but they are alot stronger than stock.

if I am not to late I would say buy a nice set of alloy 28 spline axles. do you have abs on the rear if so you will need to get the abs gear off and the studs off. or buy new from SHM and be done. I have mosers in my car and they do fine. if you need help let me know!

FYI the stock axles are good to 550 TQ.

less if you'd doing super launches with slicks.



From what' I've heard swaping the axles is the way to go, but you have to get the inside part too, plus install, it's about 700 bucks last time I checked.

well the axles are 31 spine, you need the yoke part inside that accepts 31 splines, cant remember the name.

sorry, I suck.

then I guess not, if your staying the same spline.

I don't know much about the rear end stuff, haven't done mine yet.

First off what are you planning on doing with the car? If you don't put alot of meat behind the car and leave hard there is no reason to go anymore more than stock axles.

Oh hell.....fuck 28 spines, you best step up to the 31 splines or you will be walking. Get a good 31 spline carrier and some Strange or Moser 31 spline axles and be done with it.
