    Performance Upgrade. If your running a heavily modified or forced induction SN95 Mustang, your stock axles might be too weak to take the additional punishment. But after installing a set of SR Performance 1541H alloy steel axles you will be sure to get all your pony's power and torque firmly planted to the pavement - where it belongs.

    Built to Out Perform. SR Performance Axles are forged from premium quality 1541H high manganese steel alloy that is induction heat treated for an axle shaft that is stronger and much more durable than stock, making it perfect for high stress street and race applications.

    Application. This pair of SR Performance 5-Lug 28 Spline Axles are specifically designed for use on 1994 to 1998 GT and SVT Cobra Mustangs with or without ABS that have the stock 8.8" 28-spline LSD installed.

    Application Note: 1979-2004 V8 Mustangs came factory equipped with 28 spline axles, except for 2003-2004 SVT Cobras which were 31 spline.

    I upgraded from 28 spline to 31 spline axels and 31 spline carrier. The axel bearings won't go on the 31 spline 5 lug axels, or do I have to clean the black oxide off the axels. Or are the Bearings different for an 8.8 rear end.

    • The diameter of the axles do not change between the 28 and 31 spline. The bearings should fit both a 28 and 31 spline.

    I'm in the process of building ah overhauled 5.0 for my 96 SN95. After completion the garage that is creating a twin turbo kit for estimates 800 hp and so I am looking to upgrade the axle in my car. The question I have is how much can these axle rods take in terms of WHP?

    • Hi, These SR Performance 8.8 Axles - 28 Spline 5 Lug will only hold around 300 whp i suggest swapping to a 31 spline rear end and talking to a shop who can make you a set of custom axles for your application.

      Fit and worked like stock

      These were purchased to replace stock axles that were used-up from bad wheel bearings. The cost wasn't much more than stock units and the quality is better making the decision a no-brainer.

      Great quality axles

      The axles are a total upgrade from the stock ones - due to better steel. The backlash at the wheels was greatly reduced form the old ones, which had over 160k miles, and showed it's wear at the splines. I kept my original studs since they looked good and are better steel quality than the ones included in the kit.

      Solid Product

      Shipping was fast and the axles arrived with about 8 other boxes undamaged. The axles are solid quality. The only issue you may run into is swapping the exciter ring for the ABS system. Be prepared to replace that as well as the ABS magnets in the event yours don't come out in ome piece.

      Fantastic Fit, Quality Parts

      I bought this set of axles and hardware because my car was involved in an accident where an axle shaft was damaged and made the wheel oscillate when trying to spin it. That being said, I also needed bearings and seals to make sure my repair was solid. The kit came with Koyo bearings (YAAAAAAS), and came with seals and studs. The wheel studs are shorter than stock, that's your call if you want to re-use your old studs. Also, these axles do accept the ABS tone ring after heating the tone ring up a bit. The axles themselves are a direct fit and require no modification to fit in the 8.8 housing. I am extremely happy that this kit made my car work normally again.

      Great replacement over Broken stock ones!

      So I broke my driver side axle right at the drag strip right at the splines considering they were stock it's about time to replace I ordered these and when they arrived they look and feel like great quality and way better than stock, they arrived from TEN factory and they say it has 10yr warranty so I think that's awesome! I installed and car is running great! Haven't went back to the strip yet but will update on how they feel and if they ever break!

      SR Performance 28 Spline Axles

      Hey all, I just installed a set of these axles in my 1997 V6 with a 7.5 rear end, and they fit flawlessly, I'm just putting the word out there that there are no fitment issues and are the exact same length between the 7.5 and 8.8 at least on the non ABS model. (Which truly shouldn't make any difference as it is just an added reluctor ring for ABS)

      SR Performance Axles

      I ordered two SR Performance 28 spline axles from American Muscle for my 1994 Mustang GT. The quality over the stock Ford Mustang 28 spline axles was huge. The splines were built so much more robust, especially in the splines and strong using the 1541H high manganese steel alloy. It may be psychological, but the Mustang GT seemed to have more authority while shifting, The axles arrived in 2 days with free shipping and I am very pleased with their performance.

      axles

      The shipping was great as usual. received the axles and first installed the studs. then I removed the old axels and the bearings and seals. (you will need the correct puller to get the bearings out.) installed the new bearings and then installed the axels. every thing fit good. now I don't need to wory so much about breaking an axel on the starting line.
