    hey i found a 14 bolt off a burban at the junkyard for a really good price, only thing is when i turn the axle shafts, the knuckle that hooks up to the driveshaft kinda makes a small scraping noise as if it is bent a bit. Is this regular, if not is it costly to repair?

    There might be a shield on the yoke that covers the pinion seal that could be bent.I bent the one on my 12 bolt yoke and it made some noise.Dont know if a 14 bolt has this though.
