    So I've got this 62 Dart 8 3/4 that I need to narrow about 1 1/2" on each side... Does anybody know if the splines in these old axles go far enough up the shaft that I could just cut it off? Then just cut down the housing? I don't see the need to dump the bolt on hubs.. It's in a car and I don't want to even take it out if I have to buy axles...got too many 8.8s layin around..

    1 1/2" cut off? I have never seen a factory axle that you could cut off and still have enough left.

    I had New yorker axles cut and re-splined in a 69 Dart I used to have . I ran the Yorker large drums with it and green bearings.
