Id get Evans axles.

Something Scott hasnt mentioned is he is on his 3rd ring and pinion for that 8.8

No way I would run a C-clip axle and anything bigger than 37s.

You are going to want full width axles. no way narrow axles and 44s will work or it will be stupid tall.

Forget radius arms, 3 link or 4link it with a pan hard

Your gonna want high steer.

5.13s are not tall enough. You want 5.38s minimum which is all the bigger you can go in a D44 or 8.8.

You want a FF rear axle.

Your also going to have driveshaft angle issues.

2nd ring and pinion.. what i thought was gonna be #3 turned out just to be busted spiders, which was the stock junk from the 98 sploder that i pulled the axle from. and 5.38s are made for D44 and 8.8
