Hey folks

I'm having trouble keeping the rear end of our metric street stock in one piece. The last two weeks we DNF'd because of broken axles. They twist off at the splines near the center section. The problem is the rules say we have to use the stock rear end, (GM 7 1/2) and I can't figure out how to beef this thing up. (the housing, carrier, gears, bearings, mini-spool etc were all replaced) Any suggestions?

Thanks

I second that. Mosers are the way to go. There about $230.00 for two. They install just like the ones you remove.

I thought of that too. Everthing but the brake shoes have been replaced. It looks like I'm shopping for Moser axles.

I just hope the tech guy doesn't say "take em out, they aren't stock"

Thanks
