Woof! Those 14-bolt FF rear axles!

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] I inspected the rear axle recently in our FS GM 4X4 and I have to say that the 14-bolt full floater is a massive axle. In fact, when you peep in the rear window, you DON'T SEE the end of the pinion gear, you see a TIMKEN bearing. I had just dismantled a big Rockwell 6.31 pumpkin out of a truck and they are set up the very same way. They have three bearings on the pinion shaft instead of just two.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]
