Chrome Moly Front Axle Shafts
Description: These axle shafts are forged and machined from high strength 4340 chromium-molybdenum alloy ("chrome moly") to create the strongest front axle option available for 1/2 and 3/4T front ends. They don't have the strength reducing taper near the splines like the factory shafts and the stub shafts are the largest possible diameter for the full length.
This extra material and the high strength alloy make these axles much stronger than stock. The u-joint ears are thicker than stock, specially heat treated, and cut for full circle snap rings to help eliminate failures in this area. These heavy duty axles are guaranteed not to break. If you break them, you get a new shaft.
All standard long shafts: $170.00
All standard short shafts: $140.00
All standard stubs: $100.00
Spicer 297 non-greasable ujoint: $23.00
Spicer 297 greasable ujoint: $27.00
Ujoint installation: $20.00 per joint

There are several other vehicles that run "standard" shafts but are not as popular and we don't keep them in stock. Call for pricing and info.
A full set of axles includes both inner shafts (one long, one short) and both stub shafts for a total of $510. U-joints and installation add to that figure. Shipping is generally about $15.
All front axle sets come with the seal backing plates and 10 full circle snaprings for the u-joints.
Customs: Generally a $50.00 extra charge on a full set.
