    the only difference is the side gears where the axle goes in them, AFAIK

    If you have a 30 Spine diff. then you just need 30 spline axles. Done expect much more strength though...

    yeah, if you don't have a 60, you don't have sh!t :rolleyes:

    yeah all you need for a 28 to 30 spline convert is the side spider gears and the new 30 spline axleshafts.

    The hole is slightly bigger IIRC , where the side gears are . Pinion shaft the same , spiders the same , ring gears will interchange .

    I own one of each spline front , 30 spline DD , 28 spline trail rig .


    I actually know someone who replaced a 28 spline govloc , with a 30 spline open , and reused the old ring gear ....... wait it was you :wink1:

    so i have access to a the carrier with the ring in pinion and the spider gears and the axles all 30 spline. the reason i might go this way if it is feasable is i cant find a complete 10 bolt and dont want to upgrade to a 12 bolt because im proably selling it when it gets fixed. thanks so is there anything i need to get besides these parts?

    going 12 bolt is not really an upgrade though, the upgrade on here anyways, is slappin in a Dana 60 under the front if thats what your replacing, or a 14bff for the rear. :doah:

    the 12 bolt is almost the same as the 10, just a few minor differences.
