Well with wfritts911 gone MIA, I've been left to develop my own Ford 8.8 Swap kit. This thread is the progress of the design and production.
Design is based on a 2002 Ford Explorer's 31 spline 8.8 inch independent rear diff.
I'm using drive shaft shop stub axles, they're not currently listed on their site, however you can call and order them.
*Note* though the ford cobra rear is almost the same, the axle seal diameters are different, and are not interchangeable.
At the moment I am prototyping the parts. I have yet to source materials or get quotes from machinists.
In the end these should be 6061 Aluminum.
Using Energy Suspensions Urethane bushings for the 240z.
3D printed the prototype to check fitment. There a great bar here in dayton called Proto BuildBar, they have a wall of 3D printers, a 3d scanner, soldering stations and all sorts of electrical supplies, its a geek's heaven.
Designed up the mustache bar specifically to the ford explorer's cover. (not the cobra sorry) Then had it cut out on my friend's router table.
The front mount is a modified ron tyler mount. I dont have images or photos of it yet.
Thats about the progress I have made so far, will keep you all posted!
