stock axles are 31 spline

So this winter I was having some fun in a parking lot and drifted into a buried curb. had to get a new rim and a tow to the dealership, ever since then I had a squeak from the brake because my axle was bent. last week I finally got around to replacing it and found that they are 31 spline axles in the 2011+ stock mustang.

So,,, What is your question or problem? All v8 mustangs since 2005 have 31 spline axles.

31 spline axle doesn't have anything to do with the gears. It is simply the number of splines on the end of the axle where it connects to the differential. Could have any gear set in there for the 8.8.

The 8.8 has had the 31 spline since the S197 was introduced in 2005. Very rare to find even an older Mustang with the 8.8 and anything less than 31 splines.
