got it on the road yesterday and went for a drive and the rear end stared making nosies and felt like a back brake had locked up. i think a bearing is bad in the axle. any other ideas about what could be wrong?

If you just want to get by and funds are limited, look for someone with your same gear ratio who wants to get ride of their Dana 35 that they swamped out for something better. If funds are not limited, get something better.

If your timing is right, people will practically give them to you.
