    One stock axle will work, but I would not do it.

    Stock replacement G-force axles won't work either.

    You can post in that thread if you have any questions.....

    Re: 8.8 diff....

    My diff is pretty much toast - massive backlash - so it's probably time to do an 8.8 swap. It really is preposterous that the stock diffs can't be rebuilt (well, not in any cost effective way...), but I guess I'm preaching to the choir on that point!
    '05 Stealth Grey CTS-V, Hyper Silver Linea Corse Venetos w/Continental ExtremeContact DWs (summer), black Team Dynamics ProRace 1.2 wheels with 275/35-18 R-compounds (track), Hyperblack Rota Torques (winter), KW Variant3s, V2 front brakes, Hotchkis rear sway bar, EPS cam, TEA-ported 243 heads, FAST92 intake w/LS2 TB, JBA Camaro/G8 1-3/4" shorty headers w/JBA cat pipes, Corsa exhaust, UUC motor and tranny mounts, UUC shifter, MAPerformance trailing arms, Specter cradle bushings, etc...
