    Ford Super 8.8 irs swap thread. Rear brakes too

    Sliding sloppy splines aren't in the cards at all. The cv design on these axles uses an octipod... like a tripod but with 8 balls. And it takes up all the movement. The cv shaft was never supposed to move at all. But like you said i can always add another snap ring. The overall play is what concerns me. It'll wobble itself apart and sheer the splines in no time.

    Got my axles back from moser and they messed them up pretty bad. Now I'm out a couple of $35 cores and the money spent cutting them. I have contacted them and they told me to email them pictures and that they'll send it up and see what they'll do about it. The only right thing to do about it would be to refund me $70 for the cores, pay for shipping and cut me another pair of axles. But we shall see if thats what they'll do. I'm losing a lot of time on the back and forth regardless, but all I want is a proper pair of axles... The darker ones are the sample stubs i sent in, and the in white ones are the ones they cut wrong... even though they had a sample to compare to... all 4 ends are done wrong. The biggest problem is they cut the space between the splines too wide and the cv star or spider has a ton of slop in it... so simply cutting it for another snap ring on the back side won't fix it
  3. Mocked up the 2015 gt mustang rear brakes and they fit perfect on a datsun if you have the wheels for them. Might be a little tight with these 17 inch wheels but they're perfect in the wheel well. As a side note, i can still mount the 11.8 inch 2014 rear brakes to run a 15 inch wheel for drag racing. I'll just need a spacer at the mount points for the caliper for the offset to match. Can't beat the price. These are insanely large brakes... fronts 13.2 and rears will be 13.
  4. ride height will be a little higher than this... but i lowered it to almost maximum, just absolutely slammed with large portions of my fenders cut out... And took a quick pic to show how much this setup corrects bump steer and roll center on very lowered 240z cars. Part of it has to do with the placement of the tie rod in relation to the ball joint, and the other part of it has to do with the spindle pin being 2 inches higher in relation to the ball join... Its essentially a drop spindle that has built in bumpsteer correction as well, especially when used with T3 tie rods.

    Waiting on my axles to return. Meanwhile I'm finishing everything up and will be ready to drive it once the axles are back. Need to plumb up my wilwood pedals and maybe weld up some of the rust.
  6. Once i re plumb all the brake lines and mount my new RHD pedal setup (and get my axles back) i should be able to finally drive it. While I'm here i need to address some of this terrible rust.

    Went digging in the junkyard today. The hybrid cv joint idea is a no go, mustangs used 8 balls while the explorer (2004) used 6 balls. Would have saved me $125 by not having to spline both ends. But not a deal breaker. Still much cheaper than the 800hp axles, just not as cheap as I'd hoped. Here is a picture that shows why i picked these axles as cores. The shaft in the middle is the mustang one that i cut a section out of to make the perfect length.

    An example of what to avoid... the "AC" axles. It'll be on the tag, but this seller put it on the shaft as well.

    Did some digging online. The left hand axle that ends with "BC" is for the v8. The one that ends in "ac" is for the weaker ecoboost. Ending in "38-BC" is right hand, and "39-BC" is left hand.

    Went digging in the junkyard today with the CV spider in my pocket. Turns out the 02 explorer has the same diameter shaft ends... but courser splines. The good news is its a solid heat treated shaft and its the same thickness its whole length, necking down only for the splines. I also called moser and talked to them about sending in a core shaft and paying for two pairs of CV axle spline service and they're happy to do it so long as they look everything over and it seams like it works. Cutting the heat treating off the hollow shafts just wasn't sitting well with me. I also discovered that the two left shafts are different on the ends in diameter and one had a slightly smaller cv joint pair... I'm guessing i got one v8 shaft and the other from a v6 car. Both are splined the same into the housing and at the hubs... but one is stronger than the other with bigger cv joints. The left and right v8 shaft have the same size cv joints... its just the spare left shaft had some differences. Going back to the junkyard tomorrow to compare my cv joint to the explorer outer cv. If they are the same internally i plan on building a hybrid cv. But if they're different I'll pay for 2 pairs of spline service and know that I'll never have to worry about the strength of those shafts...

    The $1,200/pair price tag isn't for shafts, its for the entire thing, 930 cv joints and all. With 34 spline stub axles into the housing and 32 spline stub going into the hub bearing. Totally agree with you on the smaller diameter full floater style shafts.

    Cutting hollow axles isn't my first choice, but they're still head and shoulders better than what came in these cars. Ideally i would ship out some solid shafts taken from a junkyard for cheap And pay for the service of 4 ends to be splined... This would still be incredibly cheap but give me some peace of mind. The core axles themselves are 55 to 75 bucks per side. The end plan is to just shell out the $1,200 for some 800hp axles plus 100 for them to be in a custom length. This is still cheaper and stronger than anything offered before in a 240z. But right now what ill be testing is just how much abuse the least favored setup will take before i have to either get the shafts replaced with solid cores or buy custom made shafts. On monday I'll get all that figured out.

    Measured angles and margin of error etc. So its dead center of its adjustment with this measurement. Allowing some room for adjustments on control arms and some room for suspension articulation without coming anywhere near its limits.

    They are, but they're not driveshaft style hollow. Theres no reason to not cut them. Btw, the right side is solid and the left is hollow. You'll need two lefts and a right to make a set for the 240z. The solid side axle tapers down and can't be cut and splined so i used it as a jig to measure the length needed.

    The super 8.8 bolts in just fine. Measuring the axles and will be getting them cut and splined.
