Knuckles out everything.

i would keep the 8 lug and go with a ff 14blt or d60 in the rear.[cheers]

[stupid] then when you step up to a 60 you dont need new rims or whatnot

id personally go 14bolt or sterling(id do a sterling over 14bolt, 35spline vs 30 spline) you wont break either

a stock 60 is not much stronger if any than a 8.8 in stock trim, and the cost of the 35spline 60 axles would be more than double a sterling or 14bolt
