Hey Muzikman why are the axles different, are the d44 stronger than the c200? I'm new to the 4x4 world not trying to ask stupid question its just is alittle confusing to me.Plus I have the auto couldn't find a 6 speed anywhere when I got my X, from what I keep reading the manuals have better gear ratios and stouter running gear.
Thanks mike100 that's what I wanted to know. About the proprietary side gear splines: couldn't one replace the axle shafts along with the differential to remedy that problem and also build a bullet-proof rearend?
yes..maybe... remeber you have the odd-ball lug pattern and I'm not sure if the width is standard fullsize truck width or not.
arb may offer the locker with the 32or 33 spline side gears one day since that isn't a big redesign. it's really a titan part and there are a lot of those in the market, so titan forums definitely have the rear axle parts well documented if you need info.
I'm not too worried about the rear axle, it seems to be strong enough to handle eveything we've put it through so far and with the OR I'm already locked. Now the front is a different story. Is it related to any existing axle on the market? I'd really like to see some aftermarket components for it, I know possibly Gruzen has already found aftermarket CV shafts. Too bad Nissan didn't put a Dana 44 on the front too...
Wow those australian Nissans are badass. I'm most interested in swapping in a stronger IFS set up or beefing up the internals of the existing one. Creating an IFS X that could rival SAS Xs would be really cool.
