    Tony you know how tough the Toyota F Type axle is, shame you ripped the axle out just after I got rid of my spare Celica axle, I do have a center section from a Supra IRS, which allegedly has the same LSD and internals as my celica banjo, but its a rear loader???,

    just before xmas i managed to pick up a mussie 8.8 axle complete with lsd,
    the axle was taken to ARRC (Andy Robinson Race Cars) end of November for narrowing, Strange custom shafts, and the c clips removed and 9" bearing ends fitted.
    Today we went and picked up the shortened axle from ARRC,
    pics as follows:

    Axle just after collection from ARRC.


    Strange shaft:


    9" Bearing ends fitted to 8.8 tubes:


    Strange shaft top 'v's capri shaft bottom:




    And spoilt myself with a new electronic line loc:
