Speedster, Moser engineering (219-726-6689)makes those axles. got 2 for $247 delivered. These are not alloy axles. The tech guy told me that they are about 20% stronger that the stock axles. Deed

Surely there has to be a better price on axle's isn't there? What about the C clip problem, how do you make sure the axle does not come out on a 10 bolt? Like a Metric Monte Carlo rear.

wow ive bent a couple never broke a 10bolt axle. and as far as price chevy wants 175.00 each and if you check around the price above is not bad for new axles..

Why not just fit a 9" Ford in and be done with it? Do your rules allow that? We run a rear out of a '67 Ford pickup.Both axles are the same length and are fairly easy to find. You also have more room to play with gear ratios on a Ford than a GM rear.And in my opinion they are a heck of a lot easier to work on. Just a suggestion

I have seen people use the 12 bolt rear end which uses the bolt in axle and seen them pull it apart many times. Where a C-clip I have never seen an axle pull apart or break a C-clip.

we run that locker that they sell in the mag's for around 80.00 dollars and they hold the axles in really tight so it would really take alot to have a c- clip fall out! i would say if you ever lost a c-clip that you dont have your carrier in right????

I just purchased 10 Bolt axels from moser
I even had them redrilled to 5x5 bolt pattern
The axel flanges are thicker than the stock ones and the bearing surfaces look alot better than the ones you get from a junk yard! been in car for a year.ive never seen a c clip break at our track in 5 years,its always the axel flange.

We run the big 10 bolts (8.5 inch) and they work fine. We just have the axleshafts magnafluxed for cracks, replace the c clips and bearings, and overfill the pumpkin with about 1 gallon of synthetic lubricant. If its the smaller version of the 10 bolt, id either switch to a larger 8.5 or go with a 9 inch ford. We also use the steel spool from Speedway and 5.57 richmond gears. Hope this helps...
