hey all, whats the worth of a Lincoln Versailles 9'' vs a stock explorer 8.8? i know its 28 spline compared to my stock 31 spline, but on paper is it stronger?

i have converted my 8.8 to disc already so that wouldn't be a plus to switch to the Versailles rear. found out a relative has one sitting at his house so i could scarf it up. thanks!

Well, it's stronger than an 8.8, but if you're not busting axles in the 8.8, that's not a worthwhile reason to swap, IMO.

I would grab up any 9" in a heartbeat, given the opportunity. 'Nuff said. imp
