    ok, I am trying to estimate the cost of shipping via forward air...to do that, I need to know about how much a 10 bolt axle weighs. If anyone has shipped one in the past and knows the figure, Id appreciate the info. Even a qualified guesstimate would work. ;) thanks in advance!

    I believe they are around 250 pounds for a front axle.

    yeap 250 is right, I looked in the latest issue of FOUR WHEELER and it says they are 250 with brakes and steering arm.

    I can weigh mine if you really wanted to know.
    I have a 10 bolt rear just sitting here.

    I'd guess closer to 350 for a front 10 bolt, maybe even 400 lbs. A rear weighs in at 300.

    hey Rene, I dunno...you are canadian right? not having trouble converting kg into lbs are ya? =p just kidding! Turns out that a guy I met here at CK5, that is local, is going to buy the axles, which is cool, cause I dont wanna deal with shipping... heck I was so glad that I didnt have to ship them, that I offered to *deliver* them instead! ;)
