It's finally here, the ultimate Sterling 10.5" axle upgrade. Kit has been tested, perfected and is in production stage. Orders will ship first week of December 2017!
The Sterling Shave kit allows for 5.3" of clearance from the bottom of the axle tube after removing almost 1.5 inches of casting material. This is equal to buying 3" larger diameter tires without the added rotational mass and larger additional expense.
Large 4130 Billet Skid plate provides protection against rocks while the laser cut from 3/8" and 1/4" plate steel cover adds the much needed protection against rocks. Steel plate is CNC press formed with 15 different bends to create a geometrically strong cover. The CNC bent cover is then welded inside and out, then CNC machined flat and holes machined for a great fit.
Optional AR 500 skid plate to be announced shortly, will be compatible with covers sold now.
Truss to be released in time for Shave Kit shipment
VERY IMPORTANT - This modification will require professional level welding by a person qualified to weld cast ductile iron / Nodular iron. The sterling casting is NOT STEEL and CANNOT be welded by conventional means.
Ring gear machining is required. Ballistic Fabrication will provide machine work to housing for $200, Welding Services for $250 and machine work to ring gear for $45
