    Almost ready to go 3/4 ton. Got a pair of axles outta a 73 picku-up. Any suggestions on what to do to freshen em up while I got em on the floor? Is there a rebuild kit made for axles? Brake job is a definate, but not sure on the internals and the steering stuff. Anybody ever heard of an Eaton locker put in by Chevy? Was told thats whats in it but not sure if its factory or not. Also the 44 has the big Spicer hubs. Anything I need to do with them? Oh, is the 14 bolt going to fit an 82 Blazer or will I need to move the spring perches? Thanks for the help!!

    If it was a 3/4 ton the perches should be in the right place. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I'd pull them apart since it is easier in the shop then under the truck and check the bearings and seals, balljoints, etc. If form a 3/4 ton then they should bolt up fine but will needs a hybrid u-joint for the rear.

    I don't know of anyone that makes a complete kit. But you can get all the bearings and seals at Autozone over on Austin Bluffs. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    [/ QUOTE ] You haven't seen what's left of the '88 Blazer that I'm stripping in the garage! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif Not much left now but the frame and tub. Gonna haul the tub off to the junkyard as soon as I take off the 1 good rear quarter. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
