Default Someone to set up a 95 Z71 Rear Axle

Apparently I am to rough on my vehicles. I have went through a carrier and two sets of spiders in My 95 Chevy K1500. Does anyone know of a beefier setup as far as a carrier and spiders (or a LSD). Any help is appreciated.

Since I can't seem to find an axle is there anyone somewhat close to Lansing that knows how to set up a chevy axle. I can provide a hoist and probaly all the tools just need someone with the knowledge to do it that is willing to come to me. Thanks

do you have the 10 bolt? if so why not swap it out for a semi floating 14 bolt. they are still 6 lug and if you get one out of a half ton truck it will bolt right in, assuming you find one with gears that match you truck

X2. idky the Z71's didn't come factory with them but they are a much better alternative to the 10 bolt while still keeping the 6 lug.

mine is still up for sale and would be a bit stronger than what you have.....i do remember seeing unlimited offroad have a semi 14 bolt 6 lugger but i think those axles go for 300-400 a piece.
