This CTS-V Partial 8.8 Kit is offered for the do-it-yourselfer that wants to supply the differential center section on their own. NO modifications to frame but you will need to change to 31 spline carrier, ring and pinion and pinion flange.
- Your choice of – 8.8 adapter (use your OEM drive shaft or DSS replacement shaft) 1 piece aluminum shaft or a 1 piece carbon fiber shaft, the most durable of the three (both made by The Drive Shaft Shop).
- New 4340 axles with inner CV’s and 31 spline stubs to mate to an 8.8 rear differential equipped with a 31 spline carrier. This axle assembly will require you to reuse your factory outer CV’s. The factory outer CV’s will handle 600whp with no problem or you can upgrade to our chromoly axles with the outer cv’s already installed, rated at 1000whp.
- Powder Coated mounting brackets to mount the Ford 8.8 housing to the original mounting locations of the factory differential with hardware.
Be aware that modifications to the 8.8 rear cover will be required to fit our brackets, which will include the grinding and welding of aluminum.
