    Anyone know the specifics on a rear axle shaft for a '79 Blazer 12 bolt? Spline count and so on... I need to replace the rears ASAP! Also... any recomendations on a good brand?

    Thanks

    I am pretty sure Moser sells the 12 bolt shafts for $295.00 a pair.

    Update:
    I found a local supplier named Superior Axle and Gear. Bought two axle shafts, bearings and seals for $299 +tax. Nice quality shafts. Here is a link for anyone interested in beefing a 12 bolt.
