    I recently got a Chevy D60FF rear axle in really good shape, decent price, 4.56 gears. Guy at a local speedshop is going to modify pads/shock mounts for me. I'd like to upgrade the axle to 35 spline shafts before the ARB goes in. Does anyone know where I could get the right size spindles and hubs - or a list of parts numbers? Disk brakes are also in the plan but not quite urgent yet (I've looked at TSM). I got the D60 because I wanted a selectable locker, and am happy with the ARB in my 10-bolt. Anyone know how the OX locker stacks up against the ARB? Thanks for the input, michael

    Based on stuff I have seen in the magazine, the spindles needs to be bored out slightly in order to fit the larger 35-spline shafts. I do not believe there is a replacement spindle you can purchase (though there might be some aftermarket company that could sell you a modified spindle).

    Again, I'm not 100% sure but this is what I have heard........
