Default What Birfields/Front Axles are you using?

I'm locking up my front axle, and wanting to upgrade.

Curious what everyone is running?

This will be with 36" Swamper SXs, and 100:1 gearing, 22RE (for now, may swap in a 4.3 Chevy later)

I figure my options are either running upgraded birf's, probably heat treated stockers from Longfield, for about $150, or else a full set of Longfield 27 spline chrome-moly axles, which are $550 for the set.

If I buy the full axles, though, I can sell the spare 1985 front I was going to keep for spares, since my stock shafts can become my spares. That would recoup about 1/2 of the $400 difference..


Thanks for input!
