Engineering a Custom 8-lug Axle! | BANKS BUILT Ep 6

Keeping our ’66 Chevy C20 3/4-ton pickup an 8-lug has been tougher than we expected. We did some research and discovered there are simply no off-the-shelf 8-lug axles available, especially ones that will accommodate a Watt’s link and our Roadster Shop chassis specs. We simply weren’t willing to go from 8 to 5-lug so we took a trip to Strange Engineering​ to see if they’d create a custom 9″ 8-lug full-floating rear axle.
