    FYI

    There is no "stock" axles of this dimension. You will be getting a modified set or aftermarket.

    Not sure but I might have an extra set of these. They're stock axles that have been re-drilled. I'll look tomorrow and let you know

    Ori I'm sorry but I forgot to look. All day long I kept thinking I told somebody I'd look for something and for the life of me I couldn't remember what it was. I'm making a note so I won't forget tomorrow

      These will require you to redrill some sbp drums as well, as the offset of the axle flange will only allow you to run the original 1 3/4" brakes!! Just a note!!!

        Why not take a set of 8 3/4 axles w/ 5x4.5 pattern and have them shortened to fit a body housing, that's what I did easy peasy.

          I have a pair from a truck 8 3/4 that are plenty long and strong enough to be shortened and resplined with 4 1/2" bolt pattern. They will work with backing plates and drums from any truck, B,C,E body 8 3/4 rear

            That's exactly what I used. worked great. I have a set of c-body axles that will work just as well, if shortened, I think it cost me 65.00 dollars to have my axles shortened plus adding green bearings.

            also wildwood disc brake conversion kit will bolt on (as well as most other brands).

            If you cut a set of axles and have them resplined make sure you have the splined ends re hardened. I just pulled a set out of a duster and they were twisted. I guess if you have skinny tires and no power you can get away with it.
            You are better off re drilling axles and drums from your car. My son does them $125.00 all four 2 axles and 2 drums. Used them with slicks no problem. you pay the shipping both ways and the studs/bolts . Bolt heads must be cut to clear the parking brake arm. new studs/bolts are threaded in instead of presssed they are also tig welded to axle so not to walk in when tightening lugs. stud /bolt length must be determined for depth of lug you are using if not using thread though race or factory lugs.

              the reason they didn't break is because they weren't hardened if they are hardened they will break. its why race gear sets aren't hardened, it allows the material to flex and not break. street gears are hardened to slow wear but they break when used in race application.
