    I've tried searching this site and the web but can't find an answer. Are parts available to rebuild the 4 lug 8" rear? I figure bearings and seals are available maybe and the center section is the same as the 5 lug, but can axles or anything else be sourced new? Thanks

    If not a standard available part (google?) you could get a pair of axles made to order, but if you're sticking with 4 lug, why wouldn't the stockers work?

    I was just wondering if anybody made parts for the 4 lug rear. I couldn't find any when I googled. Thought someone on here may know. If not it's just one more reason to switch to 5 lug
