7.5's are c-clip axles. With drum brakes, if you break a c-clip, your drum/wheel/axle pulls right out of the housing.

My superior shafts (strongest you can get) with 6-lug flange were ~250 shipped. They are 31-spline though and 6-lug, dunno if that really affected the cost or not.

how much would the yukon splines run? The thing is i would be running 4.56 gears to keep some go in the truck thats why i wanted to replace the 7.5. BUt if I put in a full detroit and the yukon splines with 4.56 gears, i won't run into any trouble down the road?

They can make an axle for anything...

For a 7.5 to have 31 spline you would have to change out to bigger bearings in the tubes, a bigger carrier that is 31 spline. It's not possible to my knowledge. Neither is making a 28 spline 8.8 a 31 spline (it might be possible, but not even worth it).

You'll get 28 spline shafts

So the concensus here is that the factory LS on the Lvl 2's will need replacing after awhile? Like how many miles? and, would it be better to go with a new LS from the dealer instead of buying a used one? and what about installation costs? and how do you check the reputation of a shop that does this kinda work? or should i mention it to my service mgr at hte dealer and let the dealer do it? ya, know, i am just interested in like, when theres the possibility of getting stuck both wheels turn in stead of just one....

Unless you break it, the geared Torsen L/S on the LII should give reasonably consistent performance for the life of the vehicle.

The L/S available on other Rangers is Ford's Traction-Lok. It is a clutch type L/S with friction discs and may require periodic rebuilds during the life of the truck. How often is determined by how much abuse the diff sees.
