    I am in mesa Az and need axles. My 10 bolts carrier died and I found a 12 bolt , but its 5 lug. I need 12 bolt axleshafts. My wife has been driving me around and is getting tired of that. I would even buy a whole 10 or 12 bolt with 3.08 gears to match my front . I have some money, but not enogh to pay 75 to 120 per shaft which is what the stupid junkyards want out here.

    If your in a bind the shafts from a 10 bolt will fit in a 12 bolt and vice versa. One shaft is 1/16" longer than the other one though.

    I did try some 30 spline 10 bolt shafts and the play was greater. Was scared the c-clip would come out or wear out. But some other guys said to not worry about it. If that is the case I would have 2 spare shafts. The 5 lug shafts that came in my 12 bolt from the junkyard dont move much at all. Bear in mind this just wiggle testing by hand.
