    Snapped rear right axle

    Dear members, I need some help, any advice appreciated. I have a Gardner Douglas Cobra. Recently I have upgraded the engine to a 427 stroker SBC one and semi slick tyres which was a little bit more for my poor rear axles.




    Does anybody know where came these axles from? There is no identification number on these.

    (I would prefer a strengthened one, but first thing first: I desperately need my ride soon so I would like just simply buy a new one)

    What car was the donor? Have you any idea?

    Thanks guys for the help!

    That's a comprehensive job you've done there. One for the display case.

    that's an impressive job there Wasp - to break both ends takes some doing, i'd imagine one end going but for the torque and twist xfer to occur at both ends is rare i'd of thought

    these are Ford, there are standard and cosworth slightly thicker staft, but I think the ends where yours has snapped is the same on both?

    These are the slightly thicker ones, they look like yours. N

    Notice the ends are slightly different.

    Not sure if they are Sierra/Granada cosworth or 4x4?
