Default SSD Axles build

So i'm finally dropping some serious cash into my basically stock wraith and decided to run SSD diamond axles. Rear is done and right now i'm trying to come up with all the parts i need for the front axle.

Can anyone recommend some of the internals i need for that diamond axle?
What i've come up with so far is....
SSD diamond front axle
SSD Pro knuckles and chubs
SSD Skid
SSD Link mounts
SSD Upper mount

Now where i'm stuck is what to use for axle shafts? VP axle shaft? Any advice?
Advice on any other parts i need to complete the front axle?

Spare parts i have to work with currently are VP titanium steering links, panhard kit, chassis servo mount. My assumption is with the diamond axle, most of everything gets changed and a lot of what i have now won't be used.
So again, if you built some bulletproof SSD diamond axles, i'd love to know what parts were used. Thanks

Also, as of right now i can't find the SSD front diamond axle anywhere on the interwebs. Everyone seems to be out of stock. Any suggestions?

Hi,

What color are you looking for? I found a gray one. https://www.ebay.com/i/311436644032?...34a104ffef2337


If you want the strongest axles check out https://dluxfab.ecwid.com The stock axial uni’s would be my next choice. The most important thing is to setup steering stops so you don’t overturn and bind the axles.

Yes we are, we were out of stock for a few weeks. We got them in the warehouse yesterday so packing them now...


Dealers will have them when they order next time.

Those axles are too cool to cease production!

(sigh)

I still need to fix my MIP driveshafts and use my built Diamonds in my Bomber...

This is how bad internet rumors get started. Whoever told you that - smack them.

My post could have been misunderstood, I guess - but I did not say or mean that they stopped making them.

Where's the friggin' "Like" button when you need it?

I should have just done that to the SSD post.
