On to axles

I removed an axle for measurement tomorrow. I'm going with Dexter, $410 each plus tax, no shipping.

lahrfarm,
I got about the same deal with Dexter. The axle came exactly as ordered -measurements were perfect. No problems with installation either. Had to pick them up at the local dealership. The only problem was waitin for them to arrive!
Have fun.
Tim

Only problem I've had so far was getting the guy to understand why I did'nt want 5000# axles. I thought he was'nt going to order them for me for a few min.

Had'nt planed on it. The old ones are in good shape and should fit, I think.

Apparently the original wheels aren't split rim.

Do the shocks do anything on a torsion axle?

The subject of shock absorbers has been heavily discussed here on the forums and the VAP. I think it's a toss up. If you have them installed, they won't make the ride any worse.
