    Re: CREATIVE STEEL: CTS-V 8.8 Rear Diff Swap BOLT IN

    Just got the last of the parts from Max/Kristie and the Driveshaft Shop... It's all I can do not to call in to work sick for a couple days and get grubby. The parts look great and I can't say enough about the great support so far. Looking forward to getting rid of another V weak link.

    Nice! Did you get the entire kit, or partial? How long was your wait for the DSS parts? Take pics of your install.

    Shoot me a PM about the Cobra Diff. I can point you to the guy I got mines from, but it depends on how much you are looking to spend.

    Did the whole kit, Max's price was fair IMHO, and saved me the effort/headache of sourcing it all myself. I 've got almost 120k miles and put a maggiie on ~6 months ago, so it was just a matter or time before I start shelling stock axles Might as well get it all done in one shot. DSS took over a month longer than Max did to get me parts... thankfully I wasn't broke and waiting.

    I'm unsure wether it's a cobra diff. I have the serial number. But I don't know where to look it up from. Either way it's usable

    The guy I got my Cobra Diff from is Rob@mpsautosalvage. www dot mpsautosalvage dot com. I got a Cobra Diff with 5k miles on it, he put in new Ford Racing 3.73 gears in for me. It cost me $800. I don't know if this is too high for those internested, but when you figure selling off your stock diff, it would offset the cost, and you still save over a grand getting the partial kit in the end.

    How much was the CS cover? I don't see it on the site.

    I just got mine from Summit along with the diff breather. The dealer is another option.
