    I am putting a set of full size axles under a 79 scout II, but the spring pad ( is it called that) on the chevy axles needs to be moved in a little bit.. I dont really want to grind off the old ones and attempt to reuse them. Is there a place I could buy a set?

    Nearly every speed shop , axle builder , and fab shop has em on hand .

    I have even seen bolt on ones , but that isn't to be used where the springs also locate the axle .

    edit: d'oh! obijuan beat me to it.

    scroll past halfway on this link. they have a set for 14 bolt: http://www.diy4x.com/suspension.htm

    i'm sure they'd fab some for other axles, too if you asked.

    ord and blackwidow performance may also have something, or be willing to fab it.

    I got mine from diy4x and they are rediculous! Will be putting them on this weekend. i initially had some other crap ones on there from Ebay or something and they started to collapse after less than 2 years
