WTB: 10 bolt rear axle

Preferably with 2.73s. If you've got a pair of something else (3.73s would be perfect) I'll buy them if they're reasonably priced.

I can't find a 10 bolt with 2.73s at any junkyard in the area that is answering their telephone.

I'm in the Flint-Lansing area (Owosso to be precise) and I'll drive an hour for an axle.




Perhaps someday I'll have enough courage to say why I need a new axle.

Thanks

I have a 10 bolt rear with 3.23s and a 12 bolt rear with 3.08s if you are interested

Re: WTB: 10 bolt rear axle

Yeah, the idea was to be local so I can put my truck back together by Tuesday. Since I have yet to find anything I've been looking for trucks to buy for the axles.

I did find a junkyard that'll charge "no more than $125" if I can find one out in the yard.. but they're closed until Monday. I went and looked in their "pile of shame" but they didn't have any unopened rear ten bolts.

I even started looking at car 10 bolts to steal for the r&p.

I may have found a Dana 60 front out of a 81 Chevy because the hubs look funny. They don't look like my ten bolt hubs which is what the late Dana 44s looked like, right? I'd like to be able to identify this axle by the hubs since I don't want to go in the guys yard because I don't want to talk to him unless I'm going to buy. I'd go picture hunting but searching on 28.8k blows donkeys. I miss my 1.5Mbit cable.

Re: WTB: 10 bolt rear axle

Umm, biggest give away on a dana 60 is the king pin caps. But I can tell just from the diameter of the front hubs and how far they stick out, there quite large compared to a dana 44 or 10 bolt.

Have you tried looking for a dana 44/14 bolt combo? Or do you not want to change to 8 lug... Those combos come pretty cheap nowadays.

Re: WTB: 10 bolt rear axle

The mascot saves yet another person. Good work, Mr. Payne.

I briefly looked on your website for these infamous more-than-my-truck-is-worth Dana 60 pictures and couldn't find them but then again it takes a decade to load one picture on 28.8.

I'll look for kingpin caps. From the driveway they didn't look like they had balljoints but I couldn't tell if they had kingpins (which is why I thought it might be a Dana 60). I should be able to spot the caps even though the axle is hanging upside down.

From the driveway it looked like the hubs were smaller at the ends and then tapered larger toward the axle itself. This is what had me confused. Of the two Dana 60s I've seen in my life they both had large hubs and weren't tapered. They looked like a "ten bolt all growed up".

I have a 3/4 ton 14FF but I'm not ready to put it in yet. I can't find a front axle with 3.73s in it for a decent price around here anyway. I'm going to go junkyard hunting Monday morning anyway and see what I can find. There wasn't anything in the Pile of Shame except for a lot of opened 10 bolts, 12 bolts, 14 bolts, and Ford 9". I want to build up a couple axles and have them ready to throw under my truck all at once.

Once I get my truck put back together and I'm back to my place I'll post about my ten bolt exploits.


Thanks again, Jason.
