    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.

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

    Have the next 30 days free to finish and roadtrip this... and start drawing it all up so i can get quotes from the laser cutter etc.
  4. 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...
  5. Yes. And if using another year Subaru rack, then I think 86 Celica inners are what you want. Or for example an STI rack.
  6. So you spent 3 times as much money for weaker parts with bad geometry... brilliant. All jokes aside, if the s30 tie rods are too short, you have serious UNCORRECTABLE bump steer issues. See, the s30 rack is already too short for an easy replacement to be found for power steering add ons etc.... and that's with stock steering knuckles. The mustang knuckles allow the use of factory length Subaru racks to be used with either Celica inners or s80 Volvo inners, depending on the year of the rack... all the while maintaining correct geometry for bump steer and improving geometry on lowered cars over stock s30 setups. And BC is a great company, they offer custom coilovers for the neon as well for a great price. So getting high end custom valved and sprung bc coilovers from them will still leave you with a cheaper, stronger and better stopping set up.

    No worries, plenty of pressure coming from me. I'm in Oregon again and hoping to have it all together before I need to leave in a week.

    Thanks, yeah baby Luke had surgery at 6 days old, and has had many surgeries since then and many more to go.

    I never stopped working on this, and will see this through to the end. This is my son Luke, he is 9 months old, and was born with half a heart. It's a rare condition called hypoplastic left heart syndrome. It's fatal without emidiate surgery and even so it's an uphill fight to make it past puberty. He's had several heart surgeries and his first one was the hardest, with his chest being held open for a week. Reason I'm even bringing this up is to get the back story of what we're up against, and what has been taking so long. While we as a family were in the hospital in San Diego for 8 months I spent a lot of time researching everything currently available for high hp datsuns and the prices, weak links and other issues i came across currently on the market. I then dipped into my personal gun collection (which is a shadow of its former self now) and over time purchased parts for this conversion, while measuring and doing more research as I went along. I just recently finished up the actual design and have test fit everything and plan to road test it all soon. I just want everyone to know that any hold ups I have aren't because I'm vacationing in Europe or have lost interest in 240z cars or playing with other toys. So long story short, if I can make this kind of progress while fighting the fight of my life, you can bet your butt I'm seeing this through. And yes I'm seriously considering doing a tacked together kit as well for the diy types. But just to make it clear, I will absolutely NOT be sharing or selling blueprints or CaD files. I sacrificed what little bit of time and money I didn't even have to spare to bring something like this to market, and I don't intend to give it away. It will be the cheapest, strongest and most versatile bolt in diff setup you can put into these datsuns. But it wont be free. And no, this isn't my first rodeo on bringing something to market where there was a need. The 2014 mustang disc brake adapters I've designed for classic mopars have saved a few dozen people a total of 30k if not more so far. And yes, have put food on my table and diapers on my kids when we needed it most.

    Quick update, rough prototype is finished and test fitted in car and on the diff itself.
  11. Yes the same will work for left hand drive. The videos go into detail on anything you need. Just finished up the dash and put in the steering column as well.
  12. Swapped the rack over. Came out perfect, very happy with it. Here's the video overview.

    Uprated clutch master cylinder bore

    On the jeep one I had to yes, fairly easy though. I think I pulled out the jeep one and replaced it with the datsun one... and put the c clip back in.

    Uprated clutch master cylinder bore

    1979 to 1986 cj7 jeep master is 13/16 Or something like that and is $35... bolts right in. Worth a shot. Supposed to be 7/8

  17. Just finished up the lava thing I was doing in Hawaii. Heading to Oregon next week. You're welcome to come on down and say hi, see my progress, provide input from and outside point of view etc. I'll be there for a few weeks, and hope to finish it up.

    Dual Ball Joint Strut Modification

    2015 mustangs use dual balljoint setups as well. Which is the reason I went with the 2014 mustang spindle on my single ball joint setup. Just something to look into if you're set on a set up.

    The super 8.8 in a nodular iron case will handle that no problem. And yes I will be offering a bolt in kit, that's the entire idea with this. My own personal goal is to have a street driven 1,000 plus hp 240z widebody with 275mm and 315mm tires, so our interests align, that's for sure.

    Questions on stub axle eliminators

    To be honest, in your shoes, I would go with the techno toy tuning setup. Then use 240sx brakes, not z32. The bearing mounts are the same, and parking brake is built into the caliper. Win win. Your only problem will be they make the uprights only work with their strut, but that's easily adapted to any modern coilover. Also, it's 500 for a pair, not bad pricing. 240sx will let you stay 4 lug, just use shortened 240sx cv axles and that's it.

    Went with srt4 coilovers because they have both a cheap market and high end ones available. The front spindles are 2014 mustang brakes, which do have plenty of options. I had to drop everything and come deal with the lava situation here in Hawaii so it'll be a few weeks before I can pick it back up. Good news being that I already have the 315 tires, so I'll be able to drop the car back on its wheels and test it all out once I come back to oregon.

    Yeah, I've seen failed chromoly cages and control arms that have failed, not a pretty sight.
