    I don't know that I have that dimension anymore. It will possibly be different for the two housings, 36 and 44 but I'm not 100% on that. In the interim, maybe someone has that. I will wade through the 15,000 plus drawings I have - it may take a bit.

    Of course it's different between the 36 and 44. We went through that once offline Nick.

    Bot the offset and the pinion length is different between them.

    Good gosh! Do you recall how far back that was?! LOL I have slept a lot since then. In reviewing old notes I am unable to confirm anything. 9.75" sticks in my head but I don't know if that correct much less for which one if it was. CRS is setting in.

    Well I KNOW they're different because we use a different pinion support bracket for them. Also you have to change the driveshaft on a C4 Corvette when going from D36 to 44 for that reason. I just couldn't tell you the difference in the pinion yoke locations offhand. And OG hasn't mentioned which one he wants dimensions for .

    I knew the D-Shafts were different along with the aluminum strut and the position of the two holes in the housing but, I am unable to find any of those notes from 7 years ago.

    Just being curious out loud here, I have seen multiple companies offering extreme duty CV Joint/axle units and some that offer replacement for universal joint applications to CV. Has anyone seen any for a C4? Expensive, I'm sure but some that I have seen (systems) are for upwards of 1200 HP.

    From what I know the u-joints are NOT the weak link in the C4 rear, so I don't know how a CV joint would help anything. The u-joints are 1350's.
