Driveshaft lengths

Hi guys, is a 9" the same distance from the uni centreline to the axle centreline as a borgy? I.e for converting to a 9" can I measure up how the borgy sits and get a driveshaft made to suit the 9" at the length for the borgy??

Re: Driveshaft lengths

I did a borg warner to 9 inch swap on my XB sedan and found that the 9 inch was about half inch shorter than the borgwarner,i found that out when i put the drive shaft back on and saw that it didnt go into the gearbox as far as it used to.hope that helps, i dont know if XY diffs were the same as XB tho

Re: Driveshaft lengths

Depends on what yoke is on the 9", as there are different lengths. Most times you get away with the same shaft length.
