Default Center diff dogbone axles Front and rear for Hot Bodies D812

I'm looking to see if there is a different manf that is the same leagth as the D812 center axles Front and Rear but with dog bones instead of cvds in the center diff and the couplers also ? I know I could use the D815 center diff setup and get the bulkheads etc to convert it but that's not cheap.

I noticed the Vorza Front center dogbone is 8x83mm and the D812 is 78 mm i guess with the Vorza couplers makes it fit in deeper or something ? The Rear is 8x110mm for the Vorza Rear center the D812 is 105mm on the center rear ?

Yes, dogbones are longer than a cvd/uni of equivalent length.

Note, you will introduce a new problem with clearance issues between the steering components at full steering lock rubbing the (dogbone) coupler. Some dremel work will help. YMMV. One of the main reasons why the d815 center dogbone setup was introduced.

If you want an alternative to the Vorza coupler, Tekno part# TKR5075 is also a direct fit but you may still facing the same clearance issues.
