    I need spare 28 spline 10b axle shafts. I hit/called a total of 8 junk yards and nobody has anything. Anybody have any spares they are willing to part with?

    Rear? If so you would be a God. It seems like these either became real popular, or they have all been crushed because nobody wants them. Either way no junkyard within 30 miles has one.

    have you tried the Pick n Pulls?

    the Pick N Pull in Summit has a 1/2 off sale Sat. & Sun.

    i know for a fact they have a bunch of 1/2 ton chevy 4x4's.

    they also have a yard in Hammond, In. at Sibley Ave. & Indy Blvd.

    they also have a ton of 1/2 ton 4x4's.

    AReliables U-Pullit yard has quite a few 1/2 tons also.

    A reliable had nothing. The 2 pick and pulls i went to had nothing. The u-pull-it yard in Ford heights had nothing. I-55 auto salvage had nothing. Spencer Scrap had nothing. The two in lockport didnt have anything either. I wasted hours these past few days trying to find a spare axleshaft for tommarow. I was also out looking last week, though not as extensively. I can get 5-lug 10bolt, 12 bolt, 14SF and 14FF shafts all day long, but NOBODY has a 28spline, 6-lug 10 bolt. Did find one 30-spliner, but that doesnt help much.

    I was at the U pull it near me the other day and i saw two 10 bolts under chevys that i could pull a shaft from if needed. That is as long as the yard would let me take just the shaft and not the whole axle
