sye kit and ford 8.8

Hey guys real quick question im getting ready to buy a advanced adapters sye kit and Tom woods drive shaft combo, with some currie jj control arms. my questions is that if I eventually get a ford 8.8 rear end from ecgs will I still be able to use that tom woods drive shaft with the adapter for the ford 8.8 or would I need a different drive shaft? Id like to only buy that drive shaft once if you feel me.....

The Ford Explorer 8.8-Inch Rear Axles

looks like the pinion length is really close to that of the 35
and the pinion height is the same so I'd say you'll be fine

You should fill out your profile more ie~what axles you have

Let TW know what you plan on doing and they can make a DS that will work for both. Your drive shaft will need to be a little shorter with the 8.8. They have a HD DS that has more extension and then it can compress enough for your application.

This isn't the case for everyone, but when I switched to the 8.8 my cv driveshaft is almost too short. It is at the end of the splines. I now wish I would have measured and ordered it after I installed the 8.8

TW make two different type of drive shafts. One like the OEM and the other X spline which gives you much more compression and length. Cost just a tad more but well worth it. An added benefit in the X spline is that it is a lot beefier.
