31 spline 8.8 pr keep stock 28 spline?
Im buying a set of 4.10's that have about 45,000 miles on em for a good price. My truck only has 60,000 miles on it so im not looking to have to use em anytime soon, atleast I hope. But I am debating to use these 4.10's in either a 31 spline explorer 8.8 (mainly because the 31 spline out of rangers is so hard to find compared to the explores) or to keep my stock rear end but convert to mustang discs.
With the explorer I obviously have to go buy it, switch master cylin, and cut and reweld the spring perches to the top, but I do get discs already on it, and a stronger axle. Also is the expo 2 inches wider cus if so that would totally be another negative.
with the 28 spline 8.8, I obviously have the weaker of the axle, and I have to swap to discs but I have heard that there is much more choices for pads and rotors for the mustang swap, and the E brake is supposed to be a ton easier to hook up then with the explorer rear.
My truck is just on 33's, 4.0 5 spd 4.10 gears, and I dont hardly offroad so I dont necessarily have to have the 31 spline for strength, but just really looking for discs and something to work on over the winter to put in at some point.
So guys, which would you choose? thanks, Zach.
