Breaking the d44 rear, d60 time?

well, im twisting the splines on my rear d44 shafts.
the 38's and dual cases are taking there toll
i picked up this today, i think it will suit the bill great.
35 spline, semi float, 5 on 5.5 d60-2.
already offset like the zuk, im gonna take 7-8 inches off it to make it the same width my scout II d44 was, and am gonna toss that under it with resplined shafts.

overkill?



and yes, i do have way to many big axles laying in this pic

I had one of those axles. Sold it for 500 bucks. It was under a built scout i had and man was it stout.

I just got the brake set up on my d60 rear (30 spline dodge) I went to disks and cut off almost 50 pounds... I made up for the weight in the wheels though...

If you break those shafts you'll have to move up to 40 splines! [img]images/graemlins/burnout.gif[/img]

As crazy as this sounds Dave Shneider (DSI) has twisted 60 shafts with a 1.6 16V. I hope you don't!!
