    35 spline axles must be almost massive... I know how surprised I was years ago when I was shown the size difference of the 28 to the 31......

    What gear oil is better for my application ??

    This is the assembly tag that is on both 3rd members say to use 80wt /90 conventional gear oil , wouldn't 85wt /140 be better ???

    Both 3rd members have 35 spline Billet spools and one of the 3rd members is my Drag race set up with soft Pro gears . This nine inch was built to support 1500hp and Transbrake launches

    This is what I used on mine...
    Thicker viscosity but excellent protection against heat and shock load which IMHO is excellent for Drag Racing.

    I was able to find that same gear oil but in 80wt 90 . Very impressed with this gear oil , as you mentioned protects against shockloading and able to adhere to the gears

    I ruined a good set of gears with Lucas gear oil. I won't ever use it again.

    Ford 9" installed

    Have to order a driveshaft and waiting on Quick Performance to send the correct d/ side caliper . The caliper they originally sent won't work with a staggered shock set up , I need two pass side calipers . Quick performance is awesome as the caliper in question is being shipped free of charge due to their mistake when originally ordered last year
