07-06-2006, 10:45 PM

07-06-2006, 10:48 PM

07-06-2006, 10:53 PM

axles go snap crackle and pop on 12bolts :D

I never had a problem with my 12 bolt when it was in the Blazer. The only reason I switched to an Eaton was cause I had the gears and locker for an Eaton.

toyota rear axles aren't known to be that strong. it's wider, and has bigger brakes, it's a small upgrade. be better off with a taco rear end :D. or even a late model (86-9*) toyota ifs rear end. its 3 inches wider and still uses a toyota 8 inch carrier.

I would say its a down grade whats the front diff

07-07-2006, 09:41 AM
Front is a Toyota and rear is a welded/spooled 12 bolt. Its already been done, I was just questioning why the heck someone would do that. I know how strong the toyota one is and I know its about on par to a 1/2 ton one. Weird. Maybe the guy had it in his backyard and fucked up the toyota one.

more then likely. most v8 toys have a hard time keeping rear axle shafts in check. jap steel isn't as strong as the american steel

did you buy it

07-07-2006, 10:13 AM
Spool?? 12 bolts are a C clip axle . does it have a C clip eliminator ? My brother and I have busted two of those axles (combined effort and we were both teenagers [36] ), under heavy abuse and a heavy right foot .

bar. it's welded... no c-clip elimninator needed

07-07-2006, 10:34 AM
its probably welded. we werent sure.

07-09-2006, 04:11 PM
yup, weaker and worse ground clearance. only benfeit would be fullwidth (depending on what its out of)

(86-9*) toyota ifs rear end. its 3 inches wider and still uses a toyota 8 inch carrier.

just did this swap 2 or 3 weeks ago and im sorry dude but your wayyyyy out to lunch on the 3" measurement, its actually, 3 1/2". haha its strange cus my tires hit the frame really easily, and now the tire is 1 1/2" away from the frame at full flex, so i guess i only needed a 1/4" more width to get the tire away from the frame, oh yea and the brakes are wayy better

Dont need this info anymore. Thanks all.

people say that d44's and toyota diffs stock are close to the same strength.

consider a 10 bolt is a d44, and a 12 bolt is stronger than a d44 or a 10 bolt, then its gona be stronger than a toy diff. Plus bigger brakes and blah blah.
12 bolt with the c clip eliminator is stronger than a toy rear any day.

thats why in racing cars use 9 inch's and 12 bolts, not toy axels:D

07-10-2006, 09:39 AM
meh, other shit will break before the rear diff would. I also dont like shit when it breaks having a wheel fall off. Safety for my girl before strength my friend.

dont want a hack job truck that puts you in danger
