9.25" axle shaft upgrade available?

Short of doing a D60 SRT10 axle swap, since those are getting difficult to come across now and when you do find them, they aren't exactly cheap, are there any axle shaft upgrades available for the 9.25 rear end? I know there are better anti-spin diffs and changing the gearing but from a strength standpoint, it seems like the shafts themselves would be the weak link. Just curious.

I haven't heard of 9.25 breakage, but there are after market axles that are stronger.

Good to know. D60 would be cool but I guess not mandatory for higher HP numbers. If/when I get there. Tough to pull a perfectly good running motor.

Awesome, thanks for the links!

Good to know the 9.25 is good for higher HP #s, up to a point. I don't think that if I get around to building a new engine, it will be going over 500HP, hopefully at the wheels. I don't foresee going boosted since that would be a nightmare to get it to pass smog here in Commiefornia. N/A I can at least make it visually look mostly stock

I'm already looking at going with a DTT and 4.56 gears so throwing in some beefier axles at the same time should ensure a long life from the rear end regardless of what I end up doing with the motor.

Although, after doing a DTT, 4.56 swap with new bearings and the beefier axles, it's almost the same price wise as buying a SRT10 D60. Again, the problem is finding one. I'd want a RC axle since I have a flip kit on the truck already and that also comes with 4.56s as well. Then I would just need to add a DTT or whatever is available for the D60.

Quoted $1813.89 parts and labor for the 4.56/DTT install. Labor alone is $579.46. This is an extremely reputable shop that only does axle work. Been around for years and years and I trust their work.

I'm at $1089.76 for parts only if I do it myself. That's the Motive R&P. DTT and master install kit. Not including gear oil and any specialty tools that I will need.

I'm going to have a talk with the shop and see if I can get the price down. They are over charging for the DTT ($665.79) and R&P ($268.27). The install kit they have at $129.17. I can find it cheaper but not by much so I won't worry about that. I'm all for making a buck but the same parts can be had for cheaper on the interwebs. Labor is labor so no arguing there.

I'd really rather have them do it as I have only played with diffs one time and that was years ago with help. They have a 1yr/12k mile warranty on parts and labor too. I think I might be able to supply my own parts but need to check with them first. That would be ideal as then I can just gather the parts as the spare change comes available.

Later down the road I can get beefier axles if I decide to, although it would be ideal to do them at the time of the R&P/DTT install. I need to contact Moser to see if they have to be custom measured/made or if they have something already for them. Looks like around $350 for the new axles.

All this should leave me with a well sorted axle that will last a long time I think. Unless I can find a deal on a RC SRT10 D60....

You might consider axle bearings and seals depending on milesge. They are not included in master install kit.

I am now pushing over 600 wheel easy and I am running factory axles you won’t need to waste money on them for a good bit. Most shops charge a little mark up on parts also especially if they are doing 1/12k this way if there’s an issue they don’t get hurt that bad on it kinda like insurance for them. We mark parts up at work also but you have a nationwide hassle free warranty for 12/24.
