Re: Woof! Those 14-bolt FF rear axles!

From what I understand the Detroits are cheap for them because the Detroit is a "lunchbox locker" for them. A fellow told me they were like my Dana 70, the carrier is a 2 piece. You just open it up, pull the spiders, and drop in the Detroit. Can't confirm this cause the only vehicles I ever owned with 14 bolts never gave me any rear end trouble. Never bothered to look during fluid changes. Too bad you can't get a 1410 yoke for a 14 bolt like you can for the D-60/70, you can't really take advantage of all the strength without a bigger U-joint.

My other car is a bulldozer!
