looking through other TB threads - the 8.8 is 59.25" , the 240 rear is approx 54.25", I'm assuming the 740 rear is about 60-6.5", since cpt. Bondo said the 8.8 ends up being about .5" narrower

So, other questions would be what to do about the driveshaft, and bolt pattern.
I had the large size M47 drive shaft altered to fit both ends, 1330 yoke I think on the rear end side and an ebay yoke for the transmission end.

Redrilling the axles wouldn’t be too expensive. I know Kyle had his done for the 240 rear end in his Amazon to get them to match the 5x114.3 front hubs. You can order them in custom sizes/bolt patterns from Moser if you just want to press the easy button though.

Yes, the L means Limited slip.

As for the question on length, not seeing the earlier comment, I thought the 740 axle was a bit longer than 240 (less than 1/2"?)

Yeah, anything that involves machine work is tricky around here, few options and typically over $100 hour time spent rates. Probably be cheaper for me to buy new rather than ship mine somewhere for redrilling, I'll have to investigate.

My understanding from various threads, is that the 8.8 ends up being a tad shorter than 700. I don't know about 240, besides the comments that the 8.8 is several inches too wide.

Heres one with 3.27 gears. You could even get with 3.08 gears(might a little harder to find).

I saw those listings, but how to tell if they have the LSD, they don't mention it
