Non-SRT8 Driveshaft Speed?

Does anyone know on here what the driveshaft critical speeds in the regular WK are? A future mod of mine is to up the speed limiter in my 2008 WK to 130-140mph. Just from looking at pics online, but not verifing with the actual part numbers, it looks like all the WKs have the same driveshaft, and thus I figured they all were balanced to the same speed? I did not want to increase the speed limiter and one day find out at 120+ the driveshaft was not rated for this and KA-BOOM all over the highway. Thanks

Don't know about the driveshaft but I hope you change out your tires. I think the factory tires max speed is 118

Re: Non-SRT8 Driveshaft Speed?

I have my eye on General Grabber AT2 in 255/60/18. They are H rated, which is good to 130

Re: Non-SRT8 Driveshaft Speed?
