    I was wondering if any of you guys knew if Black Widow Performance 14sf axle/brake kit had stock or some sort of aftermarket, high-strength shafts. Has anyone used this setup, and if so, what do you think about it? From what I see, that is one heck of a deal for shafts and brake kit.

    Ive heard good things about this company. IMHO, you dont need upgraded shafts for the 14. Chances are...youll never break one....and if you do....you can commonly find matching pairs on here for $75 or less. Just my $.02

    The 6 lug conversion kit comes with 4340 chromoly shafts. It is for those that want to upgrade their rear axle and keep their 6 lug wheels.

    Yes they can, but it's really expensive. IMO, you'd be better off $$ wise to got with a set of 8 to 6 lug adapters and have your wheel centers enlarged.
