Ok has anyone had a 10/44 or 12 bolt rear narrowed? If so, what did it cost? I may do a project here but not sure what to use on it. My 86 K5 has a 10bolt and 12 bolt with 4.56's and a Detroit(rear0/True Trac(front).... THe body is going quick so I may scrap it.(Sorry Jerry) /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif Tonight I am getting a 89/90 Toyota p/u for casically free(trading stuff)... So I have been debating on getting the K5 axles cut down(to a little wider than stock Yota) and put them under the Yota along with the 700r4. Then I would find a 4.3 to put in front of the 700 and a 241 for behind it(with a SYE).... THis would make for a nice and stout little rig on 35's(something like an MT/R).... So I have been e-mailing around to see what prices will be. Moser got back to me and said they cant do fronts, but CAN do the rear for $95 for narrowing the housing and $95 for the shaft shortening... That sounds like a good deal. Well I figured I would look around too. Dutchman doesn't have e-mail so I didn't call yet. Next on the list was Currie. I was triying to avoid them but figured I would try. THeir reply seemed very foolish to me. First they say they dont work at all with 10 bolts and dont know anyone who does. Then they tell me they would probably stick with an 85 or older Toy front with 44 outer to eliminate the Birf's.... They proceed to tell me: "I would go with 44 outers long before I would go with 10 bolt outers just because the 44 outers are so much more plentiful and easier to find parts for. " WHat??? They are the same if you use the same as long as you use the same design spindles! And I have an easier time finding 10 bolts than 44's... After all that they proceed to tell me they wouldn't recommed using a 12 bolt rear because again of parts availability issues. WTF???? They said they would use a Ford 9" instead. No [darn], so you can sell me a $3500 rear axle.. *shaking head*. One thing they did say was it was no problem swapping on big bearing Ford 9" ends to eliminate the c-clips and they never referred to any weakness... After all this they finish out the e-mail with: "-- That size of tire is just very hard on parts - you really want to build something stout from the start, and build something that there is a lot of optional parts for so you can have enough options available to you to be able to build a unit that optimizes your tire size and your engine's output." So a Toyota with a 4.3 and 35's is goign to be harder on stuff than my K5 with heavier tires and heavier overall??? *shaking head once again* I know most wont approve of my project idea, but I am looking to eliminate my multiple vehicles down to one that can be a good DD(with better mpg) yet can hit the trails if the time comes. I'll still be a k5'er at heart and when I get a chance again, will build another down the road. So back to my subject. Have you had an axle narrowed and what did it cost you? Thanks!
