I got the axles complete from Inland Andy for $800.00ea that includes bearings and brakes. the shocks were $27.00 x 4 and the drum balance job came from a friend for $10.00 x 4. I live about an hour and 20 min. from JC so we picked up the axles from Henschen (GKN) and avoided shipping charges. Throw in the beer and lunch and your in the neighborhood of $1800.00 to $1900.00.
