it is not that much more for 300m inners if you get the from the right place... spidertrax inners with longfield joints breaks down to:
inners: 1300
outers: 1000
joints: 400

totaling 2700 as opposed to the 2000 I factored in or the 1300 it would cost for mosers machined for 50 degrees and longfield 300m joints... ot you can go with the 1550 knuckles for an extra 100-150 and run the longfield cv's which would be awesome but you are limited to 45 degrees by design of the cv. otherwise 300m 1550 shafts from ctm are in the neighbor hood of $4500

the big difference of where you cost came in is the rear steer... as you can see that is abotu 2x the cost of a rear axle so you spent 15000 as opposed to 11000.

rear shafts are 1100 from CTM with drive flanges which I thought was amazing... longfield sells just 300m double splined shafts for 375 each which is very affordable and I'm not sure where branik is but they are probably pretty affordable too.

when I bite the bullet I'm probably going with CTM in the rear just because I can and the 300m spidertrax stuff in the front.

just out of curiousity.... what vehicle are you putting the spider 9's in?
