1400hp vs 700hp axles

Recommended Posts

Hello gents,


Who's done the 1400hp shafts themselves? I've heard it's a horrible job. 


I'm tossing up which way to go. The 1400hp shafts, plus wheel bearings come out 20% more expensive.


I'm told that I'm very unlikely to break a 700hp shaft with less than 1000hp, especially with no drag racing, stalling up etc. Although manual is worse for shock loading.

So I've pulled the rear cradle out and I'm going to town on replacing all bushes while I've got the knuckles out for these new axles.


But I have a question about the diff axle seals. Is there an alternative to the Ford ones, which seem to cost $60 each? It seems excessive for just a piece of rubber. Is there a repco equivalent that anyone has used?

I found the same on one I replaced that was leaking it was an absolute pita to change. Nekminit it still leaks

I noticed inside the rim was scratched and assumed I’d done it given how much of a beach it was to take out but since it was leaking beforehand I think whoever had changed them before me had already scratched it up
