May be a dumb question but are you sure the inner shaft was 300m and not 4340? My understanding is that they have 2 levels of shafts, one that is full 300m and the other that uses 4340 inner shafts to keep cost down.

What's the upgrade path on 14-bolt or Dana 80 steering front ends? Can you upgrade the shafts to thicker/more splines and the current bells still handle it? Or are they working on a bigger bell and custom knuckles?

I know that Branik has some 40-spline inner and outer shafts that work with Dana 60 king pin parts, but still has the same dana 60 sized u-joint. Is someone in the bouncing world making a big u-joint setup to go with higher spline counts?

rcv and oversion make 2 inch 47 spline shafts with Rockwell joints(oversion) and cv ball (rcv) for 14 bolt and dana 80.

What we always did with toyota shafts (same design, but smaller) is run the shaft threw a piece of 2x2 tube that is firmly anchored ( i always use my hitch lol) until the face of the bell contacts then slide it back out a little and give it a yank (like using a slide hammer)....1 or 2 good whacks and they always pop right apart.....might work on these too?
