Re: Suitable rear axle questions??
<font color=blue>Anyone know the spline count on this model 9"?</font color=blue>
28 splines on the 9" is correct.
<font color=blue>I have also been looking at the Klune-V underdrive or an AX-15 to replace my tall-geared AX-5.</font color=blue>
Um, the AX-15 has a 3.83:1 first gear, the AX-5 you have now has a 2.93"1 first, so it's lower. A Klune-V is in a whole different world, and its also BIG $$$$.
<font color=blue>My other option is a free 8.8 that needs to be rebuilt.</font color=blue>
Do some research on this axle, parts for it are quite expensive, epsecially the brakes. I doub't you'd be able to break it with the 4 cyl, but it may be very costly to build it up.
