mk8 lsd axles from america

Postby bj928 » Fri Sep 27, 2019 9:24 pm

thought in this section would get the most exposure, so i have access to 4 transit axles from american transits, i am working in america at the moment and a local place has 4 lsd transits for breaking, the axles are ford 9.75 with 3:73 ratios, with shipping and in the uk ready to sell, i'm thinking £750 would cover it per axle, i'm shipping a couple of engines for myself, and maybe a couple of other axles, so putting an extra 1, 2, or 3 in the crate is doable, i know how hard it is to get LSD axles in the uk with the transit stud pattern of 5x160, i believe the mk8 is a could of inches wider than the earlier vans, but i'm sure than can be worked round, would need the spring perches mounting from your old axle, i will see about new U bolts and plates, as i'm guessing the old transit axle ur taking off will have different diameter tubes, if i can get enough interest i will do a deal with the breakers and maybe get any future ones they get.
