full floating kits?

I was looking at the full floating kits in my Q-tec magazine for the D35. how does this kit work, and how does it make the d35 stronger to hold up to more abuse and bigger tires?

Don't waste money on the D35. For the amount of $$$$ you'd be putting into the axle you can have a really nice set-up with an 8.8, D44, or a D60 (if you looked hard).

A full floater keeps the weight of the tires off the axle shaft. Meaning the shaft is now only using the torque from the driveline to turn the wheels. This is great if you have large diff components, but the D35 does not. Still gonna sheer ring and pinions, bend tubes, etc.

it uses a spindle with a double spline shaft. this kit is designed to "full float" your cash out of your wallet and give you a false sense of security. as posted above you can put a 8.8 or a 44 back there for the cost of that kit. after you swap it out you can cut down your 35 and turn it into a barstool or base for a coffee table.
