Unsure if axles would fit properly

I have seen some that will fit but the half shafts won't last long even on a track car. Sence the spool locks the wheels together at the same velocity turning or not it will put alot of stress on all the IRS components. If you do it, I would say stock up on some half shafts. I have a full spool (used to have a mini-spool but tore it up) in my street/strip truck's 9" and have gone through three sets of axle shafts in 9,000 miles the first set were Mosier axles. If you choose to go the spool route don't get a mini you should really get a full spool the mini only grabs on a fraction of the length of splines where the full spool bites into most of the length of splines.
