Narrowed 8.8...who done it?
I hate to ask. I have searched and searched and read until I am blue in the face and my eyes have gone cross. Certainly this has been done thousands of times already on a fixed formula.
What is the usual narrowing done? 2"? 2-1/2"? etc.
1994/5 8.8 axle housing
Factory length non-abs axles (FRPP 31t actually)...not enough spline to be cut. Will get new axles
Factory cobra brakes.
Mini tub rear & relocated shocks
Factory lower control arm brackets on 8.8
Cut off quad shock mounts
I would like to go up in bearing size but still use factory disc brakes
Don't want to narrow to the point of moving control arm bracket or running offset arms
Want a 15"x12" 6.5bs in a Billet Specialties Street Lite double beadlock. ...and as much as a 390/45-15 (29.5" tall x 14.8" section width) if I want to but I want to clear the fender so the tire will tuck up without rubbing.
Dart 348ci, Ed Curtis cam/valvetrain, Precision 76mm, Holley Dominator EFI, CNP ignition, tons of Holler EFI small parts, 4"dp, 4R70W w/T-brake, new suspension coming soon.
Little 750rwhp at 6,000rpms and only 10lbs of boost before we just got tired of playing with clutches. New 4R70W and we are turning it up. Expecting 1,000rwhp.
