ok, I've heard different numbers on this.... 1994 XLT....

Do the front axle shafts have a 27 or 28 spline count??

Also, on our 8.8's, is it a 28 or 31 spline count?

Thanks for you help.

don't know honestly, but if u are regearing, all u need to know is Dana35 IFS, and for lockers the same thing, i've never seen any place that sells locker for the front state the spline count for the 35IFS, unless u have come across a site i haven't, now for the rear 8.8 i know spline count is posted for every locker for our rear end, which is 31, sorry couldn't answer ur question exactly,

I need to know the spline count for the front end, b/c once I lock it, I'm gonna buy some spare shafts, and on those, you need to know the spline count.... Somebody's GOTTA know!! Where's Alec at? He's an Explorer Genious.

are you sure that its a 27 spline though, why I'm asking is b/c I've been to some sites that sell lockers that say that the D35 in the 91-94 Explorers are 27 spline, and other sites say its a 28 spline. I guess I'll just have to take a shaft out a count.

Somebody's GOTTA know this though!

Thank you very much sir! I REALLY appreciate it, wasn't looking forward to tearing apart the front end just to count them.
