man man.. see if you can push the differential closer to the center of the vehicle. The problem right now is that its too far to one side already so the arm length is limited. But while your at it, seeing that you have uber $$, go ahead and swap the front differential for an IRS differential.. like from a third gen or maybe the Corvette D44.

At least an F150 IFS diff with the reverse cut 8.8". You'll grenade the D35 in no time with half-axles like that. :eek:

There you go cgriffin :D You'll be the first on the forum (i think) to run dual 8.8s.. DUAL ! (assuming your not switching over to the 9" in the back)

Just go ahead and throw a 9" center section in the front too. It would be soooo easy.
