You have made the claim, we have said to either back it up with facts, or shut the hell up about your fictitious and fabled rear end. You ad nothing to the tech discussions with your asinine assertions of the reliability of a marginal 1/4ton rear axle in stock applications. You claim it is stock, but not a sane person would make those claims even if you were talking about a turdyfive super with more awesome upgrade kit complete with +50hp stickers.
I have given you the opportunity to show up with money and you can touch it, get a ride, and race against it, and then for an additional amount i'll pop the cover and let you investigate.
Add nothing to the tech, there is no tech here, just people with problems and other people giving mostly bad advice to solve their problems.
The only thing you actually for once bring in here as per intelligent is the axle spline and tq rating, however you bring with that 0.0
knowledge of what a 26 thru 30 spl axle's tq rating might be, now i actually know what and the area those axles tq limits are.
Oddly enough at 700hp and 630ft lbs im about 400 ft lbs from the D-35 axles tq limit, which you have no idea what that number is.
This is the most tech this board has seen.
All i see here is the D-35 is this and that, not one of you know it's your driving habits, or lack of driving that is breaking them and not the axles fault.
Sure some of you may be exerting some force on them and they break, but that is your fault not the axle.
It would be intelligent for all of you to stop making stupid generalizations about an axle that isn't true.
Like the all sp special tech advice you give everyone on here, put a 8.8 in it, right thats so technical and well thought out for a guy who had a cross pin failure that every diff has at some time.
thats a smart and technical solution to a simple problem and fix, and then you throw out there stupid prices that no one else is going to get like 165 for both axles, you keep smoking whatever drugs it is you smoke and give your wonderful fairly tale prices to people that aren't real world everyday options.
