We have three, two more and we're good to go.

I'll repeat an earlier question...after this what becomes the weakest link? Another poster asked the strength of the center section...If we upgrade the DS, the tranny/clutch/converter....now the CV's, looks like the center section is the next candidate...Anyone know the limits?

Just an FYI if there are any G8 guys lurking we have this same 1,000 HP Axle/CV package for the G8 now as well - click here.

SpohnPerformance, I am interested as well. Can you provide any information on what is required to replace these? Is there an install video or instructions that can be downloaded?

Also pharmd has asked a very good question below that we all need to know. Some are trying to plan for the overall driveline. Do you have any ideas on this?

OK Not to be a hater but are you f-n crazy? 1850 bucks for axles?? (How much of a discount is this buy? It better be huge.) I had a fully built rearend for a Mustang that cost me that.... for a whole rear end. My rear end was designed for over 1000HP and included gears, center section, axles, new housing, etc. Heck that even included installation. I beat on that rear with slicks and 5000 rpm launches for years on a 9 second car and it held up.

Guys do a little checking this might be some nice kit but for that price it better be life-time warranty and some really fancy stickers. (Heck my 31 spline mouser axles were life-time warranty and cost 400 bucks.)

I know we are talking axles with CV Vs a live axle setup but this is insane $$$. I really want to upgrade my axles but at that price I am going to wait till something more reasonable comes along because as popular as these cars are someone will release a more reasonable priced product.

If you do not think this is pricey then why is the Camaro part 50 bucks more than the G8 part. They are mechanically almost the same car.

Prices for the axles are $1850.00 to as high as $2100.00 for this car..

You can stay with the stock ones.

I have almost 200 HP more than stock and want piece of mind at the racetrack. Especially if I add more power... which will be likely.

Ok guys this GP is a go as I have five commitments now.

You can order these by phone or online. When ordering online enter the following coupon code in the shopping cart: 1000AGP

2010 Camaro Axle Package - click here

2008-2009 Pontiac G8 Axle Package - click here

We'll keep this coupon code active until this Friday 10/23/09 at 4:30 PM (Eastern). The sooner everyone gets their order in the sooner we can get them rolling. If anyone else wants in you can use the above coupon code until Friday afternoon.

Thanks!
Steve

Installation would be by the service manual as they are a 100% direct replacement, there's no mods, etc. required.

As for the strength of the center section it's too early to say. We have a customer running low 9's with a G8 and his center section is still doing fine. I'm sure the aftermarket will be all over the center section/gear market soon enough, we just have to be patient.

I do not have a service manual, so will I need to buy one from GM? If so do you have any idea on the part number and the cost? Or are you saying I need to take it to the dealer? Will the rear need to be re-aligned?

Thanks

Everything I have seen, used and installed from these guys has been exceptional. Glad to see they are making products for this model now too.

Thanks,
