If you can afford to buy those stubs, then you can afford to buy a machinist friend a 12 pack of beer.

I wouldnt be busting your balls if you didnt specify FREE in your post. Quit being a cheap fuck.

I can afford it, but I don't have any machinist friends. The biggest problem is that I don't have time and honestly I'm not that concerned about the runout and balance considering their track record so far. If I had more time I'd look into finding someone in Vegas that is competent. Between juggling work, my wife's night schooling, and taking care of my two daughters (less than six years old), I honestly don't have the time. I am busy enough seven days a week that I can barely even work on the car.

I was offering to do it if someone already had a contact because it would make my life a whole lot easier given my current situation. I suppose I'll be a little more cautious next time when attempting to assist people in getting information that honestly makes no difference to me.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with mig welds. Stop thinking that.

The get nuts stubs are not always available either. Only when they aren't busy doing other stuff. And theres a significant price difference when neither is more functional or better than the other.

I think 03-07 350z axles are 29 spline, 08 changed to 32 I believe... i didnt count them but they didnt fit into my s14 hubs. Also the 08 axles have threads on the axle flange itself.

Interesting, didn't think the hub splines would change. Have to keep that in mind when I order z axles.

Can we get a confirmation on this?

If this is true, it would be perfect for someone like me with Z32TT hubs and the Q45/Z32TT axle combo. No more searching for rare Z32TT axles, just use 08+ Z33 axles on both sides with the Z32TT hubs. Would be the new best option for OEM axles assuming it's as strong as the Q45/Z32TT axles. Q45/Z32TT axles are also threaded on the 6x1 flange, it'd be a direct drop in.

I have a set of 08 axles at home. I can count the splines tonight. the OD of the splines on the 240sx and 05 350z axles I measured at 29mm in diameter. The 08 are 32mm in diameter. One of the problems you may run into or that can be a hassle is that the axle side is threaded. You would need to fit the bolt through the stub closest to the diff side. The bolt head would be facing the center of the diff if you get what i mean

Hate to burst everyone's bubble, but all 350Z axles are the same, through all years. NorcalAP2, you may have G35 axles from a 2008, they are different than the 350z axles but I'm not sure how yet. They have different part numbers.

I have yet to look into 370Z/G37 axle configuration.

Those are the same 29-spline 5-bolt VLSD output shafts the Z32 N/A used before they switched to the dual ABS rings style.

Well whether it's 350z/370z/G35, I'd really appreciate any info you guys can find. If I ever break a Z32TT axle (it's a possibility autocrossing with 335 Hoosiers...) it would be great to find a modern replacement.

Idk about better. Not exactly as easy to find jdm s13/gtst r32 axles here in the states as it is to find 350z axles. Also those axles aren't any stronger than stock. the r32 gtr axles are though, but don't work with these stubs.

Has anyone every contacted Raxles for replacment axles? Instead of all the mix and match stuff, why can't we just have them make a strong axle (or even replacement OE grade) that fits the most common stuff?

I know on our car we destroyed everything, until Marty at Raxles made us a nice setup using a real cv inner (the Rzeppa-ish style) that mimiced a porsche style inner, and then R32 (vw) outer...best of both worlds. These are now onto their 45th or so hour of racing without a single sign of failure.

I've never heard of Raxles, but this sounds like a good solution to me, so long as they are not ridiculous price wise. One issue I can forsee is that some of us need a touch longer axle to not stretch the boots, but that seems a simple problem with a simple solution.

DSS wants to charge a lot of money for such things.

I just called them and they said they DO NOT do Nissan axles of any kind. Odd since they have Maxima axles listed in their customer car section.

Oh no shit! I just figured he did them all. That freakin SUCKS!


Edit: I figured they just did as I know they did Maxima stuff at one point (as I owned a Maxima)

DSS wants to charge a lot of money for such things.
GKtech does make an axle spacer but not from the diff side, it would be from the hub side. they offer it in different lengths too. this would help not stretch your boots

just slip it onto the axle before you put them in if all you need to is to compress the boot a bit. They do note that with the 10mm and bigger spacer, you will need to either drill the nut for the cotter pin or use an appropriate thread locking compound.

I decided to go with the "OEM swapable parts" route and put a Q45 VLSD into my S13 pumpkin. Let me tell you, it is not a simple ring swap.

1. The Q45 ring gear is thicker, so when you bolt the R200 ring gear to the Q45 vlsd, the diff needs re-shimming to have proper engagment.

2. The Q45 diff uses smaller hardware to bolt the ring gear on, so you need expensive Nismo S15 bolts to bolt the ring gear on properly. I re-used the S13 hardware because I decided IDGAF and I'm going to change to the Villians stubs and a proper diff eventually.

3. The Q45 stubshafts don't fit correctly after that. The long shaft doesn't seat all the way into the diff, and needs to be machined so it sits at an acceptable level. I machined .25" down to the shaft OD, and the metal shield just covers the axle seal. Hopefully this works, but I'd recommend doing .5". I'm going to measure freeplay after I install the axles, and I may or may not have to machine the extra down.
