Ford 8.8, new shafts, new discs?

If one were to do the 8.8 swap, but wanted 5 on 5.5, moser shafts could be obtained. but what about the discs? wouldn't you need new discs also?

Yes the rotors will need to be drilled also.
The main reason I opted for running adapters, was so that I could still use stock axle shafts or rotors, when repairs were necessary.

Wow, you can get a nice tan on your arms, from welding with no shirt on.

H8, how much were your adapters and where did you get them again? I'm just thinking ahead for next years front D44 swap... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Ford 8.8, new shafts, new discs?

I bought them from, my friend who owns the 4 WPW, in Reno, NV (its an associates store). I can get you their number when the time comes.
They are a very solid design, made from billet aluminum. They were about $100 for the 2 of them.

Are there any oem rotors that'll work, like an early 90s Chevy?
