Birfield/CV options

Just wondering if anyone has tried to see if there is any sort of stronger birf/CV that could be made to fit the samurai axle? If so, what machine work is involved? Any ideas?
Heard of Subaru being used, could not find much on it though.
Keep zook axle related please, plenty info to be found out there on swapping to Yota axles.
Thanks
Phil

Brents Double Toughs are the only ones I've heard of.

TT has some andthey come with beefier axles. I

Think Bobby Long will treat them if you send in cores. Youl'll probably just end up breaking shafts unles you do something about the axles too though.

Re: Birfield/CV options

O.K. I have a piar of tracker CV's sitting here, and a picture of a samurai birf to compare.
The tracker is 22 spline, so it's probably the same strength, but good for a spare. The stube spline is the same as the samurai's.
Total length of this CV is a little over 7 1/8"
dia. of outer body before lip - 3"
dia. of lip - 3.12"
dia. of bearing surface - 1.100"
There is a shoulder on the tracker CV that looks like it needs to be machined off for the bearing to sit closer to the CV.
The circlip grove will have to be cut near the end of the stub.
Now, Ive read that the 95 and up trackers or sidekicks have 26 spline fronts, any chance they will have 26 at the CV? Any way to get those to fit in the samurai knuckle?
Anyone tried this?
Hope to hear some ideas.
