Re: 10 bolt rear axles

I'm going to say no...I was informed recently that the 2wd axles were shorter than the 4wd. Before the new body style, 6 lug axles meant 4wd and 5 lug meant 2wd. One way to make sure, pull the axle and measure.

I'm pretty sure you can do it. It seems that only 12 bolts had the issue of different axle widths. 1972 was a real odd year.

I'd just go ahead and pull them out and see if they are the same length.
