Rob, I know this is an old post but I would like to ask, I was was thinking about putting the 8.8 out of my mustang under my truck till I realized that the pinion was offset. Is this not an issue if you center it up off the wheel hubs? Gotta say Im hopping for its not, cause it all ready has gears, and disc brakes.
