Ideally I'd like to have a set of military 1 1/4 ton axles and run my 4.88 gears but we shall see. I've heard both good and bad about the Chevy 10 bolts, just like everything else (ex Ford 6.0 engine etc). There are people out there that like them and have no issues and others have a lemon from the first day. If I snap them then it's not really a big deal because I got the axles and gears for cheaper than I would have been out just buying a set of gears.
Very true. It's sometimes cheaper to purchase a few axles of one type than it is to purchase an upgraded version. BUT, who has the time to be replacing axles all the time? I for one no longre can afford to spend my spare time on replacing axles when ihave a little girl who wants me to do things with her, or when I have other things going on.
