    I had a set of spiders and spare shafts up until about 3 months ago. Sorry.

    I would suggest that you just buy an entire axle from a JY and they just use the parts you need.

    We don't even know what year or model you're talking about, so it's hard to give you a range. If you want detailed answers, you gotta give detailed information. It shouldn't be too complicated, don't be afraid to go for it. You've got nothing to lose. The hardest part about it from my understanding is setting up the ring and pinion. If you're not changing those, and you make sure that all the shims and the bearing caps all go back in EXACTLY how they came out, it should be fairly easy.

    Someone ought to know what would be interchangable with that. Rear ends don't really change a lot, so I'm sure there will be plenty to choose from.
