    You can get everything from your local parts store...just be sure to buy all USA made parts. You can also order from Randy's Ring and Pinion for simplicity.

    Parts store will stock wheel bearings. Rotors are for the front of a 3/4 ton rig. All the rest of it will probably have to come from a supplier. I would just go get another 14 bolt ff if you're not changing to an other-than-stock ratio.

    So spend money to repalce it with an axle, which may or may not need new bearings and races. For the price of a junk yard axle he can get a rebuild kit and not have to worry about problems down the road. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    Don't know where you get your junkyard axles, but I definitely wouldn't mess with a 14 bolt to keep a stock ratio. I can get 14 bolt full floaters for $75-100 all day long.

    If the ratio was changing, by all means, definitely, I would spend the money.

    Ya i guess your right who would want a nice fresh rebuilt axle for 130 bucks and a little time. It would be much better to dig through a yard to find a doged out, used one in margianlly better shape than the one you have for 75-100. Silly me
