m226 chromoly axle shafts

Is there a huge benefit (that sounds stupid I know) running on the stock e locker, would I need to change my e locker to an arb or something else to reap the real benefit? 370 isn't bad for chromoly shafts

Still not too bad, I spent a lot more than that on my Honda civic ones so it would handle 600 HP

06 (^^^) to answer your question, no, you would not need to buy a new carrier to run the Chromo shafts. You would have to buy new bearings and seals though and press off the tone ring on your OEM shafts to install on the new ones, along with the bearing cage.

Or, buy new tone rings, bearing, seals and bearing cage and use the OEM axles as a set of trail spares.

As for benefit, this is really for peace of mind. The stock axles are good, but going to a 35" tire or larger you'll want the knowledge that the equipment under your rig is as tough as possible. Personally, I'm putting an ARB in along with the chromo axles but that isn't expressly needed.

We still need to find a side gear to send Moser to make sure the splines on the end will be machined correctly.

In this he said that the extra cost was to keep the tone ring? So it will come with a new chromoly one I am assuming?

No.

Here's the bottom line. The axles will be bare axles, no tone ring, no bearings, no bearing cage, no bearing retainer ring. Just the axle. The purchaser will be responsible for all the associated parts that go on the axle to install it.

All the stuff I mentioned is pressed on the axle. See this for further detail:



I have to call Shane this morning and ask a couple of questions. Might have located a side gear but it'll have to wait until next week to get it sent to them.

Breaks mine too. Dunno where we're going from here, but I think a lot of interest went south since they're not really chromoly. We'll see.

If this project dies then I want to get Aaron his axles back. After that, I'll see if I can score a set of my own and see what I can come up with. I don't want to have other guys parts floating out in the wind.
