    Expect pics today. It was to dark last night to pull the diff cover.

    I looked at the broken shaft. Its broke where the axle is clipped in the diff with the c clip.

    I'm thinking that I could possibly put a shaft in it and that would take care of it but I would feel better if I stepped up to the 14 bolt.

    This is still my DD so I need to get it back up ASAP.

    The cost of that 10 bolt axle shaft will not be too far away from the cost of a 14 bolt. Of course that depends on what you plan and want to do to it though. Disc brakes, locker, gears...etc. I picked my 14ff a few years ago from a junkyard on half off day, it cost about 80 bucks. And that was with 4.10's and an open carrier. Just make sure you double check the spring pad widths, one of the guys here thought he was pulling a 14 out of a 3/4 ton (the badge showed 3/4 ton, but was really a one ton) and as a result he had to move the perches, not a huge deal but a PITA nonetheless. You can get it done easily in one day, including picking the axle up from the yard in the morning, of course depending how far away you are from your yard.

    BTW, I took care of my 10 bolt on the street with some 31's, I went to let my stroker stretch er open just after break in, and the only break in that I did was on the limited slip carrier in the 10 bolt.

    I'm thinking very hard about going to a 14 bolt FF.

    I'm thinkin that if I get an axle from the yard it will need new breaks so I might as well go to a disk break conversion. I need to see how much it will cost to get all the parts to do the swap though.

    What do yall think?

    do it, do it, dont be skeered. I cant remeber how much my rear disc cost me, but I think it was around 150 bucks, but I also alread had the calipers from my old 10 bolt front. The brackets seem to run about $50, then youll need the lines, whic I ad some made locally for me $50, and another 50 for the discs from a 3/4 ton front 4x4. And lastly the calipers. All in all its a very worthy swap. Oh and dont forget about your rims, they need to be 8 lug.

    First I've heard of this type of breakage, was even a post about it not that long ago where a few people said the same thing, never seen it. Pics! :)

    i dont know if you plan on running 8 lugs in the future but from around '86 to '93 gm offered a light duty 3/4 ton truck w/ the semi-floating 14 bolt that was 6 lug....so if you wanted to still use your current rims you could look for that axle....or if you are set on a FF14 bolt (prolly your best option) you could get the 8-lug outers from a 3/4 ton 10 bolt, then you would have matching 8 lugs front and rear so you would only have to carry 1 spare tire....or you could get a matching set of 14ff and D60 :) or you could just run 8 lug in the back and 6 in the front if its not that bigga deal to you...


    Options in order of your best bet....

    1. 14FF and D60 :thumb:
    2. 14FF and 8 lug outers from a 3/4 ton 8-lug
    3. 14FF and have 8-lugs in the rear and 6-lugs in the front (carry 2 spares)
    4. 14SF 6-lug from light duty 3/4 ton
    5. Replace axle shaft in 10-bolt :shame:


    well which one is it?? remember to try to have your gear ratios match...

    I will have pics posted soon. I have to find the cable for my camera. My cousin has a 14 bolt that has 3.73 gears in it already so i think I will pick that up. I thought about finding one that has 4.10 gears but i want 4.56s anyways. So I might as well have an axle w/ matching gear sets until i can regear them.

    I will do the 8 lug conversion on the front in a few weeks when I get some cash. For now I will do 8 lug / 6 lug. It will be ghetto but who cares right?
