It would only have 1 piece shafts if someone had already changed them out. A $230 upgrade.
Where on the housing did he show you a welded piece?
aha! well thanks, didn't know that. thought it was something that improved over the years like the final year '86's having d44's on the rear. I know that's cause they ran out of 20's (or so I have read), but I thought the axle shafts were something they had switched out for the better over the years.
I believe the weld he showed me was right next to the differential where the tube goes in.
