) and wanted some advice on wether I should upgrade the 27 spline stock axle shafts in the D30 to 27 spline chromolly's and throw in an auto locker like detroit or if I should fork over the extra cash and get an ARB. Would a super 30 be overkill for 35's? Thanks in advance
first let me say this if your gonna kill it overkill it. Having said that though getting a ARB for the front then chromoly shafts if you do that you might as well get the Super 30 front which has the 30 spline shafts. In a perfect world where cash wasnt the biggest stumbling block thats what I would do to my very own D30. But such is not the case, so I have and run 35s BTW in my D30 a Lockrite locker. For now the shafts are stock. I would like to upgrade them to Alloy USA but for the prices I have seen, Ill just keep saving up and either do a Super 30 or what Id like to do and that is get a stronger front axle then go to Clayton long arms.....
Anyway to answer your question, I think a Lockrite, Aussie locker etc up front will do you perfect, and Id just run your stock shafts. HTH.
