    My Axels are too long, the rear end has been shortened to 53 inches, not sure why, But this is how my brother-inlaw purchased it. I have B body Axels which are 5/8 too long. Can I safely cut this much off without resplining them, they are tappered up too the spline, not enough too respline them. This is a street only car. If I have these cut down it will leave 3/4 of an inch of spline, is this enough?

    no way is 3/4" of spline enough. sorry man but they are not going to work. if they are tapered and is not enough meat to respline then your out of luck.

    If you remove the thrust block in the differential you will only need to cut off about 1/8" per side. You'll need to switch to green bearings if you do this though....

    It's "axles", not "axels".
