Re: axle question

Am I to assume from all this that no one has an answer to my original question? After all why get really offset rims that will strain things like ball joints and such when I can just get a wider axle in the first place and have fewer strained parts to worry about?

Re: axle question

Re: axle question

I'm not sure why you are so upset.

I do appreciate the info on rims and if it comes to that I may go that route.

All I am wondering about is whether the older axle is wider than the new one and if any one knows what the new one is? ie, dana, ford and how they compare.

It has nothing to do with money as it is as I could get a custom axle if I wanted best of all worlds but that is not the point. Nor do I have that kind of cash flow. I am just trying to better determine what type of donor truck to be looking for so that when I have cash I will make the right decision.
Thanks,

Re: axle question

I think most fullsize axles are close to the same width. That's why we mentioned if you want wider go with a wider offset on the wheels. Yes it will add aditional stress but if you go big enough it offsets.
