Are you wanting a BAD TO THE BONE axle that wont break the bank? The GM 14 bolt is the way to go.
We have been around the block and seen the evolution of axles. The 14 bolt axle is hands down the strongest "for the money" axle in the 1 ton arena. Its relatively light weight and super strong for its size.
This axle trumps the Dana 60 in strength due to its larger ring and pinion gear and a 3rd bearing on the snout of the pinion that keeps gear deflection down.
Some of the biggest players in the offroad game have chosen the 14 bolt for its simplicity in gear set-up and brute strength. Racers and trail riders know the 14 bolt will take a straight beat down and keep going.
*LABOR: IF YOU WOULD LIKE A PART, BUT DO NOT WISH TO HAVE BUSTED KNUCKLE OFFROAD INSTALL IT, SIMPLY DO NOT CHECK THE INSTALL CHECK BOXES.
*BASE PRICE IS FOR A RE-TUBED AXLE HOUSING WITH OUTER CS INSTALLED.
OFFSETS: This axle can be built for front or rear applications. We re-tube the axle with 3.5" x .500" wall D.O.M. tubing for custom pinion offsets. The standard driver and passenger side offsets we offer are designed to work in most buggies. If you need a specific offset for your axle we can build it to your specifications. There are tons of options on how we can build your axle. If you do not see your configuration please give us a call and we can custom build whatever you desire.
SPOOLS/LOCKERS: We offer 30 spline, 35 spline spools and lockers for 14 bolt axles. Spools are the strongest option. Lockers will allow the vehicle to turn better when not on the throttle but are not as strong and are more aggressive on axle shafts.
RING AND PINION GEARS: Yukon ring and pinion gears are used standard in our axle assembly. We also have USA gear, Motive gear, Nitro gear, and Factory GM pull-out gears. Newer style ribbed housings have install kits that are slightly more expensive.
YOKES: We only offer forged u-bolt style yokes for 14 bolt axles. They are available in 1350, 1410, 1480 styles.
SEALS: 14 bolt axles never had seals at the differential. When building a steering axle seals will need to be installed inside the axle tube. We use a seal housing that has multiple dual-lip seals inline to keep oil in the differential and dirt out out of your gears.
DIFF COVERS: 14 bolts have a big lip on them that KILL ground clearance. Choose one of our lifetime replacement 3/8 plate diff covers that allow 1-3/8" additional ground clearance. We can cut the lip off the differential for you or you can do it yourself
KNUCKLES AND Cs : We carry Solid Axle Industries and REID Racing knuckles. Solid knuckles have a 6 bolt high steer arm platform with a key milled into the knuckle and high steer arm that makes the assembly nearly impossible to shear off. Reid Knuckles are extremely strong and use a 5 bolt platform to attach the steering knuckle to the steering arm.
HUBS AND SPINDLES: We use forged Dana 60 hubs and spindles on our axles. They use all standard Dana 60 components and are based on Chevy/Dodge spindles and offsets.
DRIVE FLANGES/LOCKOUTS: Drive flanges are offered from various manufacturers. Lockouts are offered in 35 spline from Yukon. Yukon hardcore drive flanges are the strongest option for lockout hubs.
BRAKES: Brakes for these axles are simple 1/2 ton disk brake kits from early model Chevy Dana 60s. They are reliable and inexpensive. Parts can be found at any parts store and they will take a beating! We offer light weight
