Mark,
Welcome to the forum! :groupwave:
Replies may be slow coming in. Most are out or away during this holiday weekend. Things will pick back up in a week or two.
You could do a search (upper right corner) to get you started. You may find some old posts with some of this info in it.
Also, I highly recommend looking at the frequently asked questions (5th one down), listed under the IH Cub Cadet Tractor topic. :bluethumbsup:

Admittedly I am not a fan of CCC or later equipment, for me if it wasn't built by IH it doesn't exist. Now having said that, I have watched more than a few folks talk about swapping out the aluminum rear housing because they want cast iron one.. but I honestly have never seen a failure of an aluminum unit with the extreme braces. Perhaps it has happened in a pulling tractor or some such and I haven't seen it.... but I don't think it's an all that common occurance. Now I do believe in the golden rule. Which is he who is spending the gold makes the rules! But swapping out the rear end housing wouldn't be high on my priority list. :cool:

Glad that most don't share your beliefs. Some of the best Cubs were designed and built by CCC. They took a robust machine, and made some upgrades. Now after 1997, Cub and MTD can go pound sand..
And that is kinda my point. - the Ally rear has a bad reputation... but do they really fail once you install the braces? I'm thinking it's much ado about nothing.

The ears can and do break off in extreme situations, and the frame to rear bolts break off in the alum. housing or loosen. Due diligence goes a long way! I don't hear of ring gear or fine spline axle shaft failures.
