With the money we saved doing most of the work ourselves and selling off our factory eight-lug outers, we decided to splurge on the axleshafts. These sexy beasts are RCV Performance Ultimate CV Axles that utilize a CV joint between the inner and outer shafts. The RCV shafts are twice as strong as a factory axleshaft and unlike a conventional U-joint, offer full strength regardless of the turning angle. They are sealed with a polyurethane boot and require only periodic maintenance. Even better, they come with a no-questions-asked lifetime warranty. The company frequently works with custom axles, so it was a simple matter of calling them with our shortened long-side measurement.
