Just taking it easy!
ok, here is the problem, I have the dana 35 with 3.07's and drum brakes, I want 4.10's or 4.56's and disk brakes and a stronger axle to handle some 33's. I am going to get a ford 8.8 out of an explorer and swap it out rather then regear and reinforce the d35. I don't have the money to do everything at once, but I am going to be getting a set of RE adjustable control arms pretty quick and want to put an SYE/cv in and am wondering about the length of the CV. Can I get the SYE/CV now and install them and then do the 8.8 swap or is the length that much different? I am just floating an idea so any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks alot, AL
"rejected by the signature police"
sye / cv length
I don't know for sure on length but I have a 6" fabtech longarm and my cv measures out at 17" center to center after the sye was put in. Itshould be the same if you have a smaller lift and should not matter if you do it before or after the lift is on.
All the reading I've done contradicts this. Going from a Dana 44 to a Ford 8.8 requires a longer driveshaft, but going from a Dana 35 to a Ford 8.8 should not. Keep reading or wait until someone replies that has done the swap.
