    Hey, today i went to the local junkyard to get me a 14 bolt ff axle for my blazer. I found one on a '85 suburban, the wheels were off and the hogs head was sitting in the mud, so i went up and asked how much it was going to cost and they said about $450.00!!!!!(This is with me pulling the axle out also) <font color="red"> </font> IS THIS TO MUCH????? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    That's way too much... I got my entire set of 3/4 tons for $650 and that was with the detroit and 4.88 gears... not to mention all the new shafts, u-joints and ball joints that came with it /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif There's better deals to be had my man, keep your eyes peeled! /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    Also, a 14 bolt out of a Sub will more likely be the semi-floater design, not the full floater everyone wants. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    even 100 bucks is pushing it for an FF axle currently, i wouldnt touch it for less than 150 at a yard, if i had my own yard i would be underslling left and right easy cake, if you were closer then i could hook you up with 3.73 FF 14 axle but youll need to find hubs and drums and shafts for it, otherwise fine nothng wrong internally.


    good luck

    I got mine in a yard for $150. That was with them pulling it. 450 is way to much.

    Keep your eyes open for old farm trucks. I snagged a 77 K20 for $150 with a D44 and 14BFF, 4:10 gears. I stripped off the axles, wheels &amp; tires, steering box and other assorted items. I ended up getting $20 for it when I hauled the rest of it to the junkyard. The deals are out there, just gotta be patient. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I got my 3/4ton set 14boltFF with posi and a 10bolt, both had 4.10's and good brakes.Paid $400 complete at a truck only wrecking yard. The guy wanted $850 for the set but I offered $400 and told him that I knew perfectly well what things are worth. Go back and show the guy that you know what the hell your doing and they usually will come way down when they relize you don't have "sucker" written on your forehead. They always shoot high on prices in the beginning to see how much money they can get out of someone.

    thats how you play this game, ifnd old farm trucks or abandoned unwanted dead trucks and give next to nothing for them and strip them.
    you can end up with a ton of goodies for same amount that a headlight costs in a yard, it seems
    with lost title is even better cuz then you can tell them hey its alot of trouble to geta replacement title, then you can get it even cheaper or for free, and then jsut cut the framerails and cab up and scrap it after taking drivetrain.
    pawn off some of the cab to some one else who scraps metal, remove VIN plate just in case so no one sees it and says anything /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif you just never know,,

    I agree, it's too much. We came across a frame with the axles on it (14FF/Dana44, 4.10's, open) for $60 from someone we know. Sold my 1/2 ton stuff for $60. I had a 14 bolt with 3.73's from a previous deal that had limited slip, so we swapped some stuff around and I have the limited slip with my 4.10's. Mind you, I spent several hundred to replace tie rod, ball joints, u joints, and brake parts but at least it's all done!
