Re: Semi OT Andy Proof Front Axle

A dana 60 in an s-10 would be extreme overkill anyway

I guess, seeing it's Andy, I'll disagree with this. An axle that's overkill, that you don't have to repair on the trail, is a good thing. Cost of repair parts is moo (as per Joey) if you never have to replace them due to breakage.
Unit bearing replacement isn't a concern, as, again, you won't break them.
If you're gonna drive it hard, which you do, and try to climb trees backwards, which you do, and probably go bigger, which you probably will, go get a 60, and be done with it.
For the cost of alloy this-and-that for whatever you come up with, you could go get a stock D60.
In fact, why not run full-width 60's front and rear. Sell the 9", and do it right.
It's time, Andy. Go buy 60's, and sling 'em under that S10. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
