I will be going with superior next, we had a D44 shaft with us but it was about a 1/4 inch to long.

snwchris Yea atleast it broke there by the ears. Have you looked into the Superior Evols or the next best thing are the Birfield CV axles.

1BLKJP Better it breaks there than inside the carrier. That's where all of my Alloys have broken.
