Thats awesome! Shop will almost be as big as the house. 1500sqft home is small but i guess if you have a 1200sqft shop you have plenty of room for storage and toys. I dont think my girlfriend and future wife would be too happy with 1500sqft. Lol
Hell 1500sqft. Is more than enough for my family. I'm not the type of guy that's has to have a fancy place. Not that I don't want nice things because we all do but I'm a simple guy. A little bud light , Copenhagen, some thing to tinker on and I'm a happy man :lol. My wife is happy with what we have but she should be. Got her a new suv and now in the process of getting a house. I'm still riding around in my 98 silverado. Which I love so it'll never leave.

OP I think you'll be happy with moser axles. I've got around 50 passes on mine with 6000 rpm clutch dumps and there holding strong. I'm also running a frpp 31 spline diff.

On pro stars you can not use stock lugs, they need a shank style lug nut. Also if you where thinking about strange axles the only down side is they use specific studs.

I think you mean stock studs because stuck lugs won't work with pro stars

I'm running strange axles I got from a buddy of mine that where on his car making alot more than 600 hp with high rpm launches. He only changed them out because he went with Mark Williams rear end.
OK thanks. So as long as I buy a shank style lug nut I can just swap lug nuts with the wheels then I'm assuming. I really didn't wanna run open ended lug nuts with my fr500s that why I wanted to be able to run my stock black lugs.

Ran my stock lug nuts with with my prostars and still do without issues.

I am not looking for anything special. Just want try to prevent any embarrassment from anything breaking. Its crazy how many people make fun of mustangs already. Doesn't bother me, just saying...

Anyways, this was my best tool purchase to date, along with building the garage.


Only problem now is that I need to find more projects to keep me in the garage.

I know this is a older thread I’m new here, I have a 02 that is being fully built. So you saying to go with Dutchmen over all brands, I was about to order some mosser ones right now from lmr, I don’t want issues at all!, Rear work being done is gears Torsen t2 billet lower weight jackers, bmr double adjustable uppers and spherical 8.8 housing bushing upgrade. I can get both Dutchmen with stock length stud and axles for a decent price more then mosser but ya

I've ran Dutchman, Strange, Moser.... Not all 31 spline axles are created equal..... or even close to equal for that matter. A couple important things you need to know (I'm going to make this quick so it wont be 5 pages lone)

There is an engineering difference between a drag car axles and a street car axle. You can buy 2 different sets of 35 spline axles and the drag axle with break on the street and the street axle will break on the strip. This is because street car axles are made so that they can tolerate both loading and unloading forces (twisting in both directions forward and reverse). This is because on the street when taking turns axles are subject to both forces. Drag car axles will work harden and break in no time if subjected to that sot of load.

So we know drag car axles and street car axles are made differently. Now let talk about forged axles for the street. Most forged street car axles are 1541 carbon steel.... MOSER, STRANGE, DUTCHMAN.... they're all 1541H. The difference between all of them is the quality of the material used and how they're hardened. The other difference is are they tapered or not. One thing that some axle companies do is they taper the center section of the axle on purpose. They do this ensure the twisting forces on the axle occur over a specific section of the axle. The machine work is another key part... what kind of radius is used on the drive face of the axle... IE how big the fillet is.

Now that I've said all of that all I want anyone to take away here is that AXLES ARE NOT ALL CREATED EQUAL.

In my own personal experience I would never buy another Stange Axle. They're garbage IMO. I hate the way they're designed and would never buy another set after breaking 2 of them before. Dutchman axles is my #1 choice for durable axles. If I wanted to buy the best axles I could get for a street car it would be a 35 Spline set of Dutchman axles again. If I wanted a good all around set of Forged axles that are a good upgrade over stock and wont break the bank then I would buy Moser axles. I've bought several sets of Moser axles and have never had an issue with quality control or strength of the axle. My 67 Mustang has 31 Spline Moser Axles with a detroit locker setup with a 600hp 408W stroker motor. I've beaten then bad and never had any issues at all..... After breaking 2 stock axles.

I personally wouldnt buy a knock off axle. I dont consider Moser to be the best out there but I do consider them to be one of the better of the off shelf forged axles. For me the choice is Moser or Dutchman. I've heard good things about Yukon axles but I've never ran any so I cant comment on them. I have seen G2 axles and they LOOKED OK but no idea how they perform. I wouldn't touch a US Alloy axle or SR performance.

Moser and Strange are quality brands. A fair amount of peeps on here run them with no problems. Unless you are looking to send over 1,000 foot pounds of torque to your axles while running sticky tires, I would recommend Moser and/or Strange all day.
