Buy Superior shafts and drive flanges, if you want hubs get dynaloc's. They don't make a hub that will take the abuse a Superior shaft will handle, except the pricey Dynatrac stuff.

Not sure, but a that price they can't be that good and I'm guessing no warranty. The Superior are $131 and have a 10 year warranty.

35 Spline stub shafts (D70) Spicer part #: 3-82-871

I bought mine from weller, can find them on ebay all over though. They are not a direct fit in a ford hub though. Some modification is needed due to there length. I couldn't afford chromos in the spring and was tired of shattering 30 spline stockers. Been running these since maybe June/July. No issues, been really happy with them.

Are they actually stronger than a regular 35 spline 60 shaft then?

call jimmy at extreme for 10 factory or yukons, extremeoffroadparts.com.or dale at ironmanoffroad. call machine wave listed on pirate and ask for scott for superiors. extreme also make very nice drive flanges with a grease zerk in them.200 for a set.
if your going to spend the money get superiors and be done.seen alot of broken 10 factory and yukons in the last 3 years.

If you are going to run your factory inners the stubs from Jeff's would be fine, but as said superiors and be done.

Lockouts either broached stock spicers or dynaloc if you have the cash, flanges will be cheaper and stronger though

even if your just doing the outers get the good ones.... because you WILL replace the inners sometime.then you will have no worries once it is all done and will be cheaper in the long run then buying cheap, then breaking, then buying better stuff.
you plan on running 42's or 43's and i know how you drive..you need the good stuff.
get flanges, don't waist your money on lockouts.i saw 3 broken lockouts last weekend in about 2 hours.all 35 spline stuff.

I agree but what happens when you take out the inner and destroy a $200 stub, I would be pissed.

But if he is running 42-43 he needs alloy inners and outers, I thought he was sticking with the 38's

i have broke 4 stock inners.with superior outers.they usually break close to the pinion. if it did, you have superiors outers no worries..they are under warranty.
i did the outers first then the inners when i could afford them.i have all superiors now.
or drop 1900.00 once and get the rcv shafts and never worry again.

This is the best option, their 60 and Rockwell shafts use the same cv bells. Strong as f*ck.
