Re: Woof! Those 14-bolt FF rear axles!
you can take quite a bit of a 14bolt with a grinder. i'm not sure exactly how much because i didn't measure. the shafts are either 1 1/2 or 1 5/8 in diameter. i havn't measured these either. everything i have ever seen has said 1 1/2 but i did read in one mag that they are actually 1 5/8. i just don't know nor do i care. i know how beefy they are and people with 44's run them so my little 38.5's aint gonna hurt them. the detrit for the 14bolt is cheaper than most others because the go into the stock case similar to the lunch box lockers. they do make e-z lockers for the 14 bolt and what is the difference i'm not sure but with the price of the detroit being so low who cares. you don't hear of people having problems with them like you do actual lunch box lockers do you? i havn't. slap one in... or weld it and go. good luck.
