    so was he able to install them or was the length too far off? Just curious to know if he actually tried them out. I'm assuming no since length is a pretty big issue lol. Hope this all works out soon. I want some DAMN axles!!!!!! You gotta hurry or i'll have to wait a while. I'm prone to spending money on all sorts of stuff i dont need. Thanks for the update!

    Re: Hendrix-Engineering econo axle tester needed!

    commmon Jimmy,i got cheap Rota wheels and i want cheap axles to go with um..

    also the is my DD so i am never going to go above 450 whp so why spend the $1800 on 1000hp axles if i don't even have headers yet, when a $500 investment will protect my warranty less diff..

    Please keep in mine im changing the bar ONLY,your stock v6 outers,inners ,cages etc might not make it two weeks once you beat on them.I guess i should have not rated the axles and just said hey these axles keep you from destroying your $2000 diff and more poeple would have bought them.lol....

    So when are the new testers going out? I want to know how long I've got (a close guess) so I can either take the money I have saved now and get something else and resave up or just hold on to my cash.

    It is somewhat disconcerting, as an owner of your axles, that you did not already know the appropriate axle length for a CTS-V, but maybe that's just me.

    Well the length for the pro axles may be different than the econo axels considering it uses different CV's.

    Yeah, I was just having a little fun. When I was having trouble installing my axles (I had them switched) I learned that "length" in this context is somewhat ambigous since the axles/cv can expand and compress by several inches.
