    I will be bringing the '74 for sure the '56 maybe in pieces by that time. The shocks are gabriels and they are AS only items. Jim May (dealer in Findley OH) has them for 28 bux ea or there about. Are you coming to the Metro-Detroit Rally? Take minute to sign up and call the CG to get your site. It will be cool to see ya again.

    Rollerboy, That van will do a fine of pulling a 31'r! My van is a 1/2 ton (kinda heavy half) and does an awesome job of towing my '74. I have the 5.3L with the 3:73 HD rear end, 300+HP and I typically get 14 or more MPG. Don't afraid, just hook on! The long wheel base and a properly hitched trailer will be perfect.

    Jeffery I was told by employees when I was there that they restuff axles every day. You could contact GKN and ask. If they indeed do it. Jim Titsmillier EXtention 140 or Neils(pronounced)NELLS Bray Extention 102 or Charlotte 937-596-2101/Charlotte is very knowledgable and can refer you to the men for what it costs. Im thinkn I went the right way because I got new everything. GOOD LUCK

    There is only one Distributor of GKN axles in the USA . Thats INLAND RV in Cornna Calif. Im sure there are axles just as good and cheaper, But I oppted to buy from Inland because of my proximity to the GKN factory and my ability to pick them up at factory and save the freight. In ordering from Inland I supplied ANDY (the Owner of Inland) with the serial number of my trailer. The axles was built excatly the same as the original axles that came in the trailer in 1977. I installed them myself ,I had some help, in about 2 hrs. They fit excatly where I took out the old ones ,without redrilling any holes or shimming anything. Oh did I mention I'm 70 yrs old. I had to wince a little with the price which was $1500 for the pair. Thats complete axles ready to ride 12"brakes ,new bearing and seals and all new mounting hardware.The only thing that didn't come with em was the labor and the 8 wire connectors to reconnect the brake wires.
    I think Dragon Wagon had one built by someone in Elkhart or Misiwalka Ind and Larry of LOUDRUFF had his built for his Minuet around Cleveland somewhere. So there are lots of options.
    Hope I was of some help. U can always PM me if you have more questions. If ya need a pair of them picked up at the factory and installed for you that can be arranged. Of course I have no idea where U are.
    GOOD Luck with your search PM me anytime I check my pms at least once a day,

    Sorry, No I will not be at the Mackinaw Rally, I was just there in August as part of the WBCCI Ores, Shores, Waters, & Lights Caravan. Plus I am making plans to go to Massachusetts to pick up my new 1955 Airstream, possibly that same weekend! We'll have to meet at some event next year. I'm sure you'll have a great time though! I know we do want to go back again sometime, our 1 day on the island was not enough, just not this year.
