Ive got a few questions here, im building a dune buggy/go cart and i need to determine what axle to use. Im looking for something from a samurai or maybe a side kick. What i need to know is how wide are these axles, more important, how wide with rims and 31x12.5 tires? Next, do both come with offset diffs? Last question, what are common gear ratio's for these axles. Ok, maybe one more, where can i find one for next to nothing?? Thanks.

kick axles are centered. mm, axles is... 56 inches i think on a kick, plus rims and tires. sammi's got 3.73, sj410 has 4.11, kick has 4.63 in an auto, and 5.13 in a standard. mmmm, not too sure what else... oh get 10 inch rims.

Do these axles share the same wheel bolt pattern with anything?
