The unique XRAY ECS Drive Shaft equalizes the speed between the drive shaft and the wheel. With a unique 2-piece joint between the axle and the wheel, the same extreme wheel turning angle is divided into two shallower angles without joint binding. This means that at the same cornering speed, the inner wheel will not bind or vibrate. Drive through the corner is more stable, more precise, and easier to drive. When used in rear the ECS drive shafts help to improve traction as well. The ECS Drive Shafts help also with improved landing after jumps.

With the ECS drive shafts, wheel vibrations and noise are decreased to minimum, steering is increased, stability of the car is increased and cornering speed and smoothness are noticeably increased as well. A must have option part.

So I know Bent will have something to say about this post because to him Xray can never do no wrong (haha) and he is right "that no one is making us buy this" but at $41 US dollars each, If you do the math that's $82 plus shipping for fronts and $82 for the rears. Now no one is saying we have to buy this, but Xray themselfs are saying "Vibrate and destabilize the car" that with the stock ones the inner turning wheel will shake and vibrate not giving you its full potential of traction/steering . So basically we got to pay $82 buck to fix that and $82 to get more rear traction. Just seem alittle expensive to me to fix a issue that came with a kit i have already paid for. I myself will still be buying them but it will hurt pushing that "Checkout" button even more this time around. I know you get what you Pay For as I own this 16spec and a mp9e, but to me this seems alittle over priced thats all.

and yes ill be getting them

So how do I gain just a bit more rear chassis roll, without lowering the rear camber link, and without any shock package change? Lowering the link is a tad too much. I could run a thinner rear sway bar, but I need more initial roll, not total roll. Appreciate any suggestions.

No, the Durango V5 has CVD axels front and rear just like the XB4 (but with the option of 2 widths) and universal center shafts due to the angles of the drive train.

The exploded view of the DEX410V5 from the Durango website only shows front CVD. http://www.team-durango.com/pdf/expl...6/TD102036.pdf

The back only has 2 different spots to mount the axle, nothing close to the ECS...

Personally I like to use the alu. hard coated pins with graphite gears and steel pins with steel gears, but we've never had any issues with the stock composite cross pin.

Using the composite cross pin will give you the lightest diff possible (as I'm sure you already know) so it will spool up even faster

Thank you Bentka! as always your knowledge and help is greatly appreciated my friend.

If you want to save a little coin you could purchase the Spec R front double cardone for the XB4. SPEC R does not make rears but they have had the fronts out for a while at $48 for the front pair.
