Re: Toyota Axles
When I was looking for a replacement front I came across an F40 in a junkyard. Considered using it but decided to go traditional with a '44. Didn't know what availablity would be for lockers, gears, U-joints, ball joints, tie rod ends . . . Plus it had drum brakes and I wasn't going back to that.
On the other hand someone on the board said that they are stronger than dirt, and the size is about right. I think my narrow track measured 52" or 53", so 55" axels would be fine.
