    Just read the article on 14 bolt shaving, so I went out and measured the pumpkin clearance on my blzer on 35's. I have 11.25" of clearance, and a heavyer duty rear end than a 14 bolt. I'm running an eaton with 4.56 detroit locker. G.M. used this rear diff up untill about 1972 in trucks from 3/4t to 5t. Living in Canada these diffs are getting harder to find, but down in the states, they're just junk in old trucks. Find some and send them to me:D

    You can buy bearings, brake parts (drum or disc), and even gears NEW for the Eaton axles. I know that some of the stuff gets pricy, and I don't think you can buy new 5.13's, but if you need it you can get it.

    Tractech (Eaton) no longer makes the No-Spin for it...junkyard, eBay, or convert to 14 bolt axleshafts and then use 14 bolt whatever.
