First off i dont own a charger but i want to get the rear axle out of one either the srt8 or out of the 5.7L to put in my 67 cuda. does any one have any specs on it like ring gear size, how wide the whole thing is, how much power they can take, even what the axle is (ie. dana 44). Thanks for any info

I do know that the SRT8's came with a steeper gear ratio but not much. I believe it's a 3.08 gear ratio but not a single rear axle came with a LSD and those are over $1000. I haven't heard too many good things about the half shafts being able to handle more than the stock 6.1's power rating.

I think the rearends in the Challengers are the exact same but they have optional 3.73's; 3.92's; and a LSD as well.

NO solid rear axle. They have IRS(Independent Rear Suspension). As far as new muscle cars out on the road today; I believe the only one that has a solid rear axle is the Mustang.

Did you buy the 8 3/4 yet? You might want to look into a Dana 60 or Ford 9" or do you want to stay with a Mopar unit? What kinda motor you got under the hood of that Cuda?

Sounds like a pretty nice project you got going. I just PM'd you back. :D I wouldn't be afraid to go with the 9" just because of its popularity and it has tons of support and parts available. I wish I knew of some Mopar junkyards so I could help you out a little more.

I personally would find a Srt-10 Ram rear end, dana 60, very stout, with awesome brakes! The 9.25 is pretty stout also, only thing you might have to do is get either one shortened!
