  • 1 piece axle swap model 20

    Im getting ready to start pulling my rear end apart to swap out the two piece axel with a 1 piece. Have noticed there are quite a few manufacturers of this product. Any1 have a preference? Which are the cheapo's? Whick are the strongest? See there all resonably close in price. Any advise would be helpful on the ones to stay away from and why!! Thanks for the help

    i have a pair of moser shafts im selling on ebay right now. i'll let em go for only 100$. they are they old style shafts that use a sealed ball bearings instead of the tapered bearing used in the newer shafts. the reason for the change was that moser had complaints of bearing failure with extreme use on the sealed roller bearing shafts so they switched to the tapered bearings. the ball bearing axles are still pretty strong though, and will not need to be repacked with grease every 15k like the others. you would just need to get bearings and retainers, then cut the seal out of your outer axle seal plate. no bushings to grind down or anything. press the bearings and retainers on, backing plates and seal plates first, everyone seems to mess that up so be careful to get that right no matter what you choose.

        Ash, welcome to the board, man. Captain is installing a different axle. If you can get a set of Mosers for a hundred bucks, go for it.

          I had just installed Alloy's, but I don't know if they are around anymore since Omix bought them out.

          Mosers are good, most all of the brand-name ones on the market are good. Stay away from "budget" axles. Most of those are just welded together and much lower quality steel. Get ones with a warranty and no tire size restrictions (Moser, Alloy, Superior Gear).

          Our host carries two new brands I know nothing about: G2 ans TEN Factory.

            I run Mosers, hard to beat the quality and there reputation. I beat the hell out of mine and never had any issue with the rear end.

                    i had the moser's for 12 years, although they only got used for less than half of them. but they held up beautifully. i wish i hadn't sold them but the 9 inch axle swap just makes selling them too appealing. they sold on ebay the other day, shipped em yesterday and i'll never see em again. they're gonna make somebody happy though. if only i hadn't changed my pinion seal back when i was to stupid to know you can't just crank the nut back down i'd have a fully built up M20 right now.
