Just get a junkyard FF 14b, or look for one for sale on here. I'm sure there's a few floating around here...

If you decide to rebuild it, PM bigbchevy.

maybe it's just me but why wouldn't you rebuild any axle you get out of a boneyard or from anyone for that matter unless it was just rebuilt? I would want the peace of mind knowing I had good bearings and seals throughout.

I've bolted in 1 auto trans and 2 axles that were "in good working order" only to find they were not!

Rebuild it!
