Default Custom 8.8 diff kit

Well like it says me and a friend are in the process of building a custom 8.8 diff kit just can't justify the 3grand on the kit from fbm I mean there stuff is top of the line but way out of my price range so this is where it was stopped last night hope to have it done and Axels in very soon

Nice i seen a few custom diff on here but alot of them they cut bottom of car and stuff, the kit is expensive since the drive shaft and axles cost so much!

Hey man PM me if you are interested. I am making some kits on the side and I have a machine shop that makes my adapters for the driveshaft. Let me know if you are interested. It can be made 2 different ways for the AP1/Ap2 set up.

We have tested many different designs to get to where we are now with our current kit. I can already tell you that this will not work.

I obviously can't say why it won't work, but we've been down this road already. Trust me, you can save your time or try it out yourself, that's up to you. I won't comment anymore on the design ,but the reason why our kit costs what it cost is because of the quality parts that are used. There isn't much margins in this type of stuff. You will find out once you start testing and breaking stuff.
