8.8 explorer axle shafts ->discs in drums 1/8" difference
Drum brake 8.8 explorer axle shafts are 1/8" longer on each side than disc brake axle shafts. Fact.
With such a minute difference, I would think you could utilize disc brake axle shafts as spares right?
I'd assume that prolonged use would be bad because the drum wouldnt fully cover the shoe and create a groove?
Mac said it was from a couple years ago as my kit stayed in the box for a while before I installed it. The fact that I bough it secondhand and they still honored the warranty says leaps and bounds about their company.
I put in a super 88 in mine 4 years ago and and have treated it very...poorly, and no issues. So I did not get a bad shaft.
A good thing!
What kind of warranty does the super 88 come with? was it 10 years or was it lifetime?
I also have a set of Super 30 shafts from AlloyUSA. I am guessing that they have absolutely NO warranty at all. They were a 10 year warranty, but it was more a case of the warranty is only as good as the company offering it...
But I doubt I can break them either(I have sort of tried too.) Am careful not to bind them up, as that can even pop these super shafts.
Not sure a warranty means much on these, though. They work immediately or break.
I couldn't afford Superior at the time, there was a difference of a few hundred dollars between the AlloyUSA and the Superior Super 30 kit(the super 30 includes a locker(ARB in my case) and that raises the cost to astronomical levels). But with the Super 88(no locker needed), there WAS only one maker, so the choice of which kit to get was easy. At the time anyhow, there are other choices now, but not then.
