Need a New Axle Shaft, Any Suggestions?
I have recently upgraded to a 2000 Jeep Wrangler that has a Currie 9" rear end with air locker, 4.6L stroker and 35" tires. When CheapThrillB2 replaced the seals and bearings, he noticed a twist in the splines. I have reached out to Currie, and Moser so far to see how much a replacement would be. Currie quoted me $240.00 for an axle made out of 1541 hardened material with the bearing and studs. Mosher quoted me $235.00 for an axle made out of 1541H, also comes with bearing and studs. Does anyone have any recommendations between the two, or any other company? I have reached out to Superior as well, but he suggested I call Dutchman motorsports at 503-256-6604.
Here are my specs:
wms to shaft end is 28" approx.
The part number on the bearing that is still pressed on the axle shaft is "A20". Which is the same as the full size trucks and cars. So it would be the "big bearing" or normal bearing.
Measurements for that bearing are
Wheel Bearing I.D. : 1.563"
Wheel Bearing O.D. : 3.149"
Wheel Bearing Width : .765"
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Get the Moser.
You normally don't find 4340 for rear axles because they break when you put a side load on the flange. You don't see that stress on the front axles, it's torsional.
Just my $.02
