    i'm looking for any axles that are for a 86 blazer that are six lug that have 3.73's up to 4.56 what i'm trying to do is trying to find axles to replace mine with something bigger then 3.42's. i don't know what years and what axles are interchangble or what fits so please be specific. Also does anybody know of any places in texas that sells used axles for chevy's

    I'm really looking for something higher than 3.73's but i will keep you in mind also what does open diff mean

    Open diff means theres no locker in it..jack up rear end and spin one tire and the other tire will spin the opposite way or not at all, if it has a locker both tires will spin same direction..you have a vary wide choice there because practically every chevy axle made 73-90 (&lt; someone else correct me on these years cuz I'm prolly wrong ) is almost a direct bolt in..I've got a 14bff 4.10 3/4 ton rear and 3/4 ton corporate 4.10 front under my '86,that are both '76 ,but sorry there not for sale.With some axles theres a chance you may have to move spring pads,start with getting a measurement spring pad to spring pad center on each axle and good luck with the hunt..A mid '70s heavy half axle should get you the gear ratio your looking for..
