What axle?

My friend just bought a chevy C20 3/4 ton, 1970 ( I think ) What i need to know is what kind of axle is in the rear. It is a 3rd member axle and the cover is round, if you need more info let me know and I will try to get it. there is no tags on the axle and it is rusty. Thanks for your help.

It sounds like an Eaton. Strong but gears and parts can be expensive and hard to find.
