need axle shafts.....i think

all right, i jacked up my rear end today, and as i thought, both of the wheels are wobbling, the right one wobbles side to side, noticybly, and the left is doing an up and down motion, wired, both of them take drum brakes with them when they do that.
now if im not mastaking that means that my axle shafts are bent, and i need new ones. and thats what im looking for right now, if anyone thinks im wrong, speek up before i spend the money (by the way, my truck vibrates starting at 55mph).
i've seen a site that sold what they called the toughest axle shafts for 10 bolts, if any of you know who sells those please share the info, and how much do those usually run? are there any tricks to replacing them, iv'e never pulled any out.

Will work for mods

Just the wheel bearings. Unless you are looking for excuse to get new shafts? Slap a 12 bolt in there from a junk yard. Allot cheaper and stronger than axle shafts for 10 bolt.

maybe try and find a used 14 bolt instead of the 10 bolt axle shafts

First choice: Find a SF, 6 lug 14 bolt

If you do replace your shafts, there's a few places like Moser, Genuine and Yukon plus many more I'm sure.

You're going to have to pull your diff cover off, have a buddy rotate the wheels so that your "C" clips are accessible and pull them out with a magnet. Then the shafts will slide right out.
