3.73 gear question

Has anyone had problems with their stock axles when they installed 3.73 gears? I'm planning on installing mine within the next month or so and was wondering if most switched to a heavier duty axle or to a 31 spline

Your axles are already 31 spline. No issues. You can install new axles if you want though since they have to pull them for the install. If you do, Moser is a good go-to brand.

But none of that is necessary.

I thought our 8.8 rears came with a 28 spline

Nope. 31. Here's a link to the Moser axles.

Nope. In 2011 they started using the same rearend in both the GTs and V6s. 8.8" 31 spline. I believe the only difference is gearing options.
