D30 parts salvage

I have a "spare" D30 from a when I swapped axles with better gearing, 4.56, and an ARB D44 rear a couple months back.

The D30 and broken D35 have been sitting on my garage floor for months and it's time get rid of them.

Is there anyting I should keep from the old D30? Anything prone to breakage that I should hang on to? Or should I just sh*t-can the whole thing and be done with it?

I'm pulling the D35 shafts for Craigslist, but don't know if the front shafts have any value for me or on the used market.

Thanks

I paid just over $100 for a pair of D30 inner and outer shafts shipped to my house. They should be worth something for trail spares to someone. If you put them in the for sale section for $100 I bet they would sell pretty quick.

I pulled my shafts/hubs, knuckles, rotors, pads, brass breather fitting and even the ball joints (less than a year old) from the old housing. I will probably pull the carrier and the carrier bearings, hone the inside of the carrier bearings out to use as a set-up set for installing gears and do the same with the pinion.

I'd think you'd want to keep the shafts, the knuckles, and maybe the bearings as Volkman mentioned. Oh, unless you think you might need a carrier at some point.

Okay, so I pulled the the carrier and bearings and will hang onto them, as well the as the shafts. What this about the knuckles? Do they commonly break?

If I was carrying trail spares what would make the most sense to carry? Is left or right side shaft more likely to break than the other?

I don't think the knuckles break, but if you haven't gone to a HPD30, then you have them should you decide to build one
