    chevy full size axles

    Anyone know of a place to get chevy axles without the high cost? These are going under a samurai, so they don't need to be 14 bolt/d60. I am just looking for any full size axles to start out and tinker with. Or if someone has some laying around, that they want to get rid of, that would be nice.

    The old waggy 44's make good axles for a sammy. If you look around you can find a rear that is offset like the sammys. I had a front and rear 44 from a waggy that I sold to a guy on here a while back for 200 for the pair.

    I found my new axles at a wrecking yard in Grantsville. A reverse cut D44 front and 9 inch rear for $350. They're out of a 77-79 F150. 66 inches wms-wms. Charles at RMA retubed the D44 so that the diff was on the right side for my Toy for $200. Not too bad for $550 total. I searched the yards here in town, but everyone wanted $600-$700 for the same thing.

    Thanks for the info, guys. I know that the waggy's axles are great for a samurai, but I put a buick 225 v-6 under the hood of mine, so It will definitely not be a street rig. I figure go that far, I might as well do the full size axles. And troy, I will be giving you a call to see what we can work out. Thanks again, guys!

    Thumbs up

    How hard is it to sling chevs under a samuri?
    Not too tough, from what I've seen. They are pretty wide, but that actually helps with making your own linkages, etc. I've seen it on a few samurais, and it is really trick.

    By the way, i've never heard of "round knuckle dana 44's." what does this mean. Don't tell me that this is a closed knuckle birfield type! Oh well, 44's are good anyways. And what year truck are the axles off of? Just for my info for research.

    Thanks guys!

    Every one wants flat top knuckles for x-over steering. I am not sure how to know what trucks these came on. I think fords had em alot. I was just basically telling ya that they weren't flat tops. Open knuckled 44's 3/4ton like normal. off of roughly an 85 chev truck?
    Let me know if you think you want em......
