    A salvage yard would be the last place I would look for axles. Not unless they have em for a smokin deal. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif All the ones here think they are gold plated. And going in not realy knowing what is what can be a real disadvantage when haggling.
    The classifieds here have rigs being parted out and the average price is about $100 an axle for 3/4 ton stuff with 4:10's
    You might have a better chance at getting a set of 4:56's out of a K30. But those generaly sell as soon as the paper hits the stands.
    4:10 3/4 ton axles always seem to be in the ads for a decent price.
