Don't want to step on anybody's sale but when you break an axle or blow the front diff, you have a roll under replacement that does'nt cost a dime.Unless these things are taking up too mutch space(or your marrage is in danger) I'd hold on to them.
I too have a set of '75 danas at home. I've already had to pick at them for parts myself. It was nice to pop the cover off, yank the axles and grab the Spider gears after I just made dust out of mine.
Spray the drums with light oil, you may want them someday.
The narrow axles really aren't in demand for the '76 and up crowd.

I've had some pretty big offers for the axles out of my 73. The rear D44 is one of the only years that they came factory with the one peice dana 44 axle shafts. The fronts are drum brakes, but 6 bolt hubs. The disc brake conversion is easy for the front.
Ooze, I was going to unload them, just to get rid of them. My resto is coming along nicely: Wiring is in for the omst part, heater and ducting is in, taillights, gas fill; tub, fenders and hood mounted, radiator is getting flushed, ...
I was just going to use the sale to make some $. Not that I am hurting for it. I think I am going to hold onto them for the "roll out bad, roll in not broken" feature...
RESTARTING a resto that BEGAN in 1985!
