    Ford Super 8.8 irs swap thread. Rear brakes too

    Alrighty, so after doing some reading, LOTS of reading, I have decided I am developing an end all, be all ultimate super 8.8 swap. The key features of THIS setup are as follows. -bolt on 2015 mustang hub assembly. No more $$$$ stub axles prone to breaking. -bolt on 2007 subaru coilover strut, buy cheap or buy ultra nice, entirely up to you. -bolt on s30 rear lower control arms... again use stock, or nice pieces like Arizona Z car etc, your choice. -will have stock 2015 mustang brake mounting points. We're talking disc brakes with built in parking brake in the caliper, and take off brakes for less than $200. There is a plethora of brake available for these cars, including Baer brakes drag setup that lets you use 15 inch wheels for sticky slicks on drag nights. -3.15, 3.31, 3.55, 3.73 or 4.09 gears And limited slip torsen differentials for $262 to $700 dollars for complete low mileage units. Super 8.8 much stronger than the 8.8 of yesteryear. -800 hp 930 cv axles COMPLETE for $1,299 for the pair. 34 spline into the diff and 32 at the hub. No more stub axles, companion flanges, or custom diff axle stubs or adapter needed. This price was quoted to me today from the "Driveshaft shop". I contacted them about custom length 2015 mustang axles and that's the price they gave me. -rebuildable cv joints, you only have to buy the custom axles once, and rebuild them as needed for much much cheaper. This setup could easily be adapted to use the 2002 and up explorer 8.8 but that would require asking the driveshaftshop to make you custom 31 spline axle stubs instead of the 34 spline ones they include in the $1299 price. This is something I am building for myself. But if anyone wants some I will gladly make extras. I'm just blown away at the prices of things for our Z cars, and decided to bring something to market that would potentially benefit the guys who want something more than oddball custom for stupid money. Aside from the custom length 930 cv axles EVERYTHING is off the shelf cheap and strong parts. Cheap brakes, cheap bearing hubs, cheap differentials, cheap limited slip. And so on. Also, I am designing a front disc brake setup as well. The idea is to use all 4 disc brakes off a 2015 mustang for balanced and affordable braking. It'll require a 17 or 18 inch wheel, but the guys running 800hp turbo is engines or 2jz swaps are usually already there anyway... If you have any better suggestions for a strut I'm open to ideas.

    Just doing what I can. I spent today trying to get my hands on a z32 turbo stub axle so I can compare the 2015 mustang splined. Both the 2015 mustang and the z32 turbo are 32 spline 22.8 mm on the bolt on cv splines outside. Just don't know if they work together without getting my hands on one. The 2000 dodge intrepid is the same bore in the backing plate, so you could use that too if you wanted to go bigger with 33 spline cv axle ends that go into 28 spline 930 shafts via the f150 front cv... But you'd be splitting hairs at that point, as getting custom 2,000 hp 2015 mustang axles isn't that expensive for how strong they are...

    Z31T axle swap CAN fit

    Wow, I love this.

    I have a thread in the braking forum about the front, but I'm using 2014 mustang spindles mounted on 2004 srt4 coilovers... The srt4 coilovers are being used front and back, and the 2014 mustang brakes are being used front and back, and the diff hubs and axles are 2015 mustang. I'm sure guys like you really appreciate the systems being complete off one car, not mismatched like prior offerings using custom struts and other budget blowing things.

    Well here's what I'm thinking, if I get all the bits, laser cut, tack them together using a jig I'll built so each piece is the same, and then have them professionally welded (Not by me) I'm looking at around 200 per upright and ballpark 500 for a complete cradle set up to use the factory 2015 mustang bushings. Now, but I can probably do drastically better than that for just a tacked together setup for the guys who trust their own welding... or want to have them welded by a friend of theirs etc. I can tack it all up in the jig and ship it out. Not 100% sure yet as I'm not sure on the amount of work it'll take, and the expenses of producing it all, but that's the idea.

    Had my brother make me a donut that had the r200 flange bore inside and the mustang super 8.8 other bore... then I messed up one set of holes, but the second set perfect. So I'll be driving soon on this setup without having to buy another driveshaft just yet.
  7. After looking everything over and doing some digging I came to the conclusion that using 65 mustang hubs on 240z spindles is not a cost effective solution for big brakes. I am now looking into a ball joint adapter that bolts to the control arm of the 204z and uses press in 2014 mustang ball joints. I intend to use this in conjunction with 2004 Subaru wrx coil over struts to allow the use of 5 lug 2014 mustang hubs and brakes. Which are 5x114.3 The intent is to have the outer wheel mount flange be pushed out roughly 35mm.... effectively converting our cars from a "zero offset" wheel to a "plus 35mm" wheel... aka just like the 300z and the 240sx, Toyota supra etc... It's a front steer, rear caliper spindle just like the stock 240z, once I know what the bump steer geometry will be I will have a clearer picture of things. Someone could use a widebody or flared setup if they chose to run a zero offset wheel, or use cheap and readily available 350z wheels and have stock track width. Let me know if anyone has any input on this. Good idea, bad, etc...

    Threaded rod would blow apart and more than likely kill someone. It's the factory spindle pins. My brother works for a manufacturing place and made them for me on his lunch break on a lathe. So basically it'll replace factory parts and be 100 percent bolt on.

    I looked into it for all of 3 seconds. It wasn't a viable option. The uprights are going to cost 400 for the pair, and this in turn allows the use of much cheaper 2004 srt4 coilovers and which in turn also allows cheap disc brakes to bolt on. And that's just in the rear. Up front the coilovers and spindles allow for extremely cheap 5 lug disc brakes, and coilovers and also open up the setup for proper geometry using Subaru wrx non sti steering racks, which were otherwise too wide at the pivot points for stock 240z geometry. This allows two things.... near bolt on power steering, and affordable right hand drive conversions for guys like me who just feel like doing that. So many wins on so many levels it's just mind blowing.

    Got the left hand knuckle prototype done. Angles came out exactly how I want them, with tons of room to adjust camber, so I'll be mirroring it on the other side. Then back to working on the 2015 mustang diff mount.

    Ford Super 8.8 irs swap thread. Rear brakes too

    Made lots of progress today. Tomorrow I'm going to finish up the dog leg on the uprights and the spindle pin sleave and reinstall the control arms on the rear so I can see where the camber comes out to under load and make changes from there. 2015 rear hub, and 2014 mustang brakes. Still plenty to do, and I need to finish the diff cradle as well.

    New widebody kit design

    I like the widebody aspect of it. Not really digging the front or back. Don't you have some pics of an earlier one in fiberglass? Or is that a different design.

    Whoa, those look real good. What are your wheel specs? I have 17x9.5 and 17x11 both with 4 inch backspace.

    Most likely mig, it'll be steel, 1/2 inch on some parts, 1 inch on others, then all drilled using a jig and then welded together using another jig. The bolt on hub will add strength as well. I have no idea on what you'll be using for a bolt on hub, since the explorers use a press in bearing, but I would gladly sell you a pair of knuckles that you can drill for your own hub of choice or just use 2015 mustang hubs like I am. Also, the drive line shop has 930 axles for both the explorer 31 spline and the 2015 mustang 34 spline, so getting axles to use 2015 mustang hubs and the explorer diff is an off the shelf combo that they will gladly sell you.

    Already designed it, just need to build a mockup, check all the shapes in real life, and then get the pieces laser cut, welded together etc.

    Yeah I was really tempted to do a complete subframe, but the 64 inch track width didn't appeal to me, plus it would only solve the issue of a monster diff in my car, not the masses... And because I have a youtube channel, and there's a MASSIVE hole in the market for affordable differential solutions and coilover and disc brakes I figured bringing some to market was a no brainer. Btw, if you could give me the outer dimensions of the front diff mount bushings I would be greatful. I don't have any on hand but I plan in using them in a different location to isolate the diff. The factory 4 holes are all going to be hard mount, and the bushings will be on the mustache bar and on the very front. I'm detaching the very front bit from the rest of the cradle, and using bushings between the two parts.

    Thanks. Yeah my ideas will be public and in place in a few days. That's awesome you're building A arms and such, I toyed with the idea of using the entire setup, but there's just too many moving pieces... so I'm sticking to datsun geometry. It may even come to pass that your A arms and my cradles will be the go to for guys with high hp... or it may not, as it's highly unlikely you're going to use the factory r200 mount points... either way, it's a win win for everyone. The points you bring up about the super 8.8 is exactly what I've been saying about it. They are hands down better than anything else out there for the money. My reasoning for the 2014 brakes and the 1995 brakes are because im using 2014 fronts and the 1995 is a great option for guys wanting 15 inch rear slicks... so it's a win win. And yeah, I'm going for knuckles, because of the neon coilovers, and because there's a lot already available in terms of custom control arms and r200 mustache bars.

    I also stated in a later post why I will not be using the explorer 8.8, I'd be more than happy to build you a mount, but it's not something I will be producing full time.

    I doubt they're going to harden them. Really depends on the shop. And as far as welding the axles, I wouldn't do that. Once I start making serious power in this car I plan on buying 2,000 hp axles. They're only 1,400 so it's well worth it.
  21. There's a thread in the drivetrain forum about the diff swap. You can also follow my work on my youtube channel or it's Facebook page. Www.youtube.com/invincibleextremes
  22. Working on the rear at the same time, I should have it all together in a few days and have more pictures. The ball joint is the stub cut off the 2014 mustang lower, and I trace it and cut off the pocket for the factory datsun ball joint location. Then locate the mustang stub on the control arm and weld away. Next to impossible to mess up... there's nowhere for it to be besides exactly where you cut out for it, because you traced it in the first place...
  23. Splicing in a 2014 mustang ball joint pocket was a piece of cake. It all came together no problems. Using the factory srt4 bottom strut hole and placing the top of the mustang spindle against the strut when drilling the upper hole sets it up with the perfect camber at ride height. Just a touch negative. My only concern is the strut and ball joint are no longer in line with each other. It's close, but the strut is inboard by 1 inch on this setup. I'll be paying close attention to it to see if this affects the shock any. It's not as drastic as the factory rear suspension. But I'll still be looking into what can possibly be done about this...

    240Z 5 Lug Front/Rear Conversion

    100% right, it's just money. At this point, some 5 lug stubs, drill the drums and be on your way enjoying your ride. That's really the most important thing, enjoying the cars you build.
