Axles and Diff

So I won’t bore you with how I got to this point (drag radials and a heavy car) but my axles and diff need replacing. The car is a 2016 Challenger Hellcat. The car is for the most part stock with the exception of DSS DS and CAI. The car has 3.09 diff but as stated it’s done. I plan on 2.85 upper at some point.
Looking for recommendations on replacements. I was thinking aftermarket axles and a new 3.09. I’ve read that the new diffs are a bit beefier. I do have a DIRS brace but it got here a little too late I guess.
Another option is to order Demon/Red Eye axles and diff. Will these axles work on non wide body? I believe I read that the spline count is different from hellcats but if I’m ordering diff and axles there shouldn’t be and issue?
What would you guys recommend?
I realize there’s a lot of “I think/believe” in my post but I’m getting older and is hard for me to remember these days. Lol
Thanks in advance for any advice.

Go with the Redeye axles and diff. It will fit.

Why not just get DSS axles? And a stock rear? With the brace and possibly an AAD rear suspension upgrade to square it all up, I would think you should be plenty fine
Going to be honest, I know quite a few people that have broken/damaged DSS axles with far less than the rated 1400hp, but its almost unheard of to break a Redeye axle. The AAD suspension is a nice to have but not necessary, and the diff brace should be strongly considered.

Every diff I had in a Hellcat whined, 2.62 or 3.09.
