I found someoen selling some 10 and 12 bolt axels from a 83 k5, 3.73 gears, and they are in great shape, he only wants 250 for the pair of axels. Is that a good deal? How much would an axel swamp run me? My mechanic charges $45/hour usually, and works quick, he swapped out my front suspension from blocks to new springs and shocks in under 4 hours. What I really want to know, is it worth it, or should I keep my eye out for 3/4 ton axels with 4.10+ gears? I do alot of mudding, and it sucks right now with my tiny tires and gears, I have some 35x15.5 TSL/SX in my backyard right now that I want to put on my truck, can those 3.73 handle them or no?
