Has anyone found an easy low cost rear axle replacement for a Dana 44 going under a 63 Avanti? On a Stude parts web page, I have seen new repalcement axles and bearings for $495. I can buy a ford 8" at a swap meet for $100 to $150 and then add the spring perches etc.

Has anyone found a better alternative? Thanks for your help, I have received many great suggestions from "you guys" for various questions I've had. :D

I had planned on using a 9" I had laying around. After the good advice I received on this forum,I decided i'd be wiser to retain the dana.Also,you might have a little tighter side clearance on the Avanti than my Hawk.
