    also it depends on where you get them from and condition. On the cheap side well, maybe $500 ( guys here have bought them on the truck for that much) on the high side you can look at spending 6-8K from Dynascrew or Boyce. It would be cheaper to get the 14 as they are much more plentiful.

    also forget about taking your axles to the junkyard youd be better off selling them private or making art out of them, the front axle shaft you could sell for spares at the least.

    It totally depends on where you get them. A front D60 could be any from $500 to $5000 depending on how lucky and patient or rich and impatient you are. And like they said, go for a 14 bolt in the back. They are very easy to find.

    As for money for your old axles, the junk yard would not even take mine for free. And nobody wanted to buy then either, so I stripped the good stuff out of the front for a friend and sold them for scrap metal.



    Good things come in small packages. Good things come to those who wait. So, if you're waiting for a small package, that must *really* be sweet.
