The Longfield™ Samurai 33-SplineFront Axle shafts are made out of 4340 chromoly steel. The Longfield™ birfieldsare made out of 100% chromoly and are precision polished to remove anyimperfections that may cause stress risers. The internals of our Longfield™birfields are made out of 4340 chromoly steel and then dual heat-treated forsuperior strength. Theshafts have a larger diameter than stock and are upgraded to 26-splines on thedifferential side. The Birfield side of the axle shaft and the inner race ofthe Birfield have been upgraded to 33-splines to better distribute the torqueloading.
Using 4340 chromoly steel, dual heat-treating the internals of our birfields, and upgrading the spline count to 33-splines, this kit is now 60% stronger than stock!
