He wanted to create a club for people to truly enjoy their cars. He knew the world had changed, and he wanted his companies to meet the needs of the new generation of Shelby owners. His vision was to knit together those people with the owners of early Shelby's and give everyone fun new ways to experience their high performance vehicles.   Mr. Shelby imagined a place where owners could talk about their latest conquests at the track, swap stories, share photos and learn new ways to hot rod their cars! He wanted to link all of the enthusiasts into one "dream garage"... thus, Team Shelby was born!   Team Shelby has many free, open access forums, news sections and member only areas dedicated to the community.   In addition, Team Shelby has a full series of events for 2019, which include VIP Experiences, track days, National & Regional gatherings, cruises, car shows and more!

Axle Shafts For 8" Rear End

Recommended Posts

I need to replace the axle shafts on my 1970 Fastback with a 8" rear end. One sheared off while driving (yes, it was traumatic and painful to the left rear quarter panel). In the research I have found, it seems both 8" and 9" rear ends use the same shafts. I know mine is a 28 spline.

 

Anyone out there have some info to share? Sources for axle shafts?

 

Thanks to All.

Check with Tom Cruz at Delta Bay Mustangs in Brentwood, California. He has new and used ones in stock.

All 8" rears are 28 spline. Moser and Stange both make nice hardened replacements that will handle 500+ HP. The 8" is a great rear, for 550 HP and less when built and more efficient than the 9", meaning more RWHP by 3%.

That's good to know Alex. I often thought about changing out my 8" for a 9", but now it sounds better to keep it. If I ever get to build race engine for my car, I will shoot for a 400hp-500hp range. Whats better for a track car, posi or limited slip?

I have stock 9" 28 spline axles out of my 77 bronco rear I would give you but probably too much to ship to the left coast.
