9" - 8.8" hybrid bearings ?
I'm new to this forum and new to this type of rear axle work. I'm hoping that someone can tell me if a bearing is available to fit my 8.8, 98 explorer, 31 spline axles into the large 9" ends I am wanting to put on my explorer 8.8 housing. Also, with the 9" ends it's not a c clip axle anymore by function, so is there any reason that I could not have the 8.8 axles shortened and resplined? I think it has probably taken me 2 weeks of reading and scrounging to be able to ask that Question. I really like this forum, thanks for all the help. OMG it does have spell check...
