Need 4.56 1/2-Ton Axles.....? Anyone LOCAL got \'em? OK here's the story since I KNOW with a subject line like that, everyone will be wondering if I'm insane!!! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif Just to clarify this is not for Stomper! /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif I just got the "freshly built" 700R4 back from the shop and got it bolted up underneath "Mini Me" this evening....by tomorrow, I should have the transfer case and driveshafts attached and be ready to roll....... THE PROBLEM: If you listen to Scott for too long, he'll scare you about EVERYTHING! /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif He's convinced that the 35's I put on are going to absolutely NOT work with the 3.73s it's got. He is sure that on hills it's going to keep dropping out of OD, and is going to burn up all that $$$ I just spent on my new transmission! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif The answer would seem to be to go with some deeper gears....the part I hate, is that the truck has 10-Bolts and it REALLY seems like a waste to pay money to re-gear the weakest axles GM ever put under a K5! But the reality is that I'm NOT going to wheel this thing EVER, so 10-Bolts will probably last forever for street driving.... The transmission already cost me a pretty penny, so I'm looking for a cheap solution that will give me 4.56 gears....14-Bolt is overkill and too complex for the simple swap I'm after....12-Bolt is marginally stronger, but not worth the effort to swap unless it already has the 4.56s I want. I can buy bare gearsets (Scott has already offered me ONE set) but I still have to pay for parts and installation since I can't set up gears myself. Any ideas on how to solve this....or do you know where a 1/2-Ton 4.56 axle exists....? I've still got some good stuff to trade, if people want to barter for it.... /forums/images/icons/grin.gif Keep your eyes peeled folks, and let me know if you have ideas!
