    Has anyone heard of the New Dana(Spicer) 760X ?
    Romor has it is 20% stronger, and only 0.70 cents more in cost !
    Can it compare to CTM's see www.ctmracing.com ?
    Those that attended SEMA, please shear you findings .

    Yep I've heard of them and have bought a set. They are the 5-760x and are 20-30% stronger. They were $28 for the set and can be ordered from Six States are any other driveline shop that carries them. I will be installing mine very soon. There is a rather large post on the POR forum about them.

    Nope, axle u-jionts, commonlly called wheel jionts.
    Fyi they may only have a usefull life of 10 hours before needing rebuilt/overhall.

    Executioner: Where did you get your info on them having a work life of 10 hours before needing maintenance? Where is this documented? Can you post an URL if one exists. Thanks in advance...

    Sorry not the 760X, the CTM's are very low hour units !
    The 10 hours is my opinion, based on design and test data.
