so, somebody allready got the bed, so heres the axle


now for the bad, 3 teeth on one of the spider geas are damaged,



and one of the teeth on the ring gear is chipped,


he said he wanted $175 for it, is it worth that? is it even worth trying to fix? i have a posi-trac unit for an 8.8 allready, but if i put that in this axle it would have to be set up correct? the more i get into this the better and better a lockright looks.

ok, so my dad has a set of spider gears for an 8.8 that be said he'd give me. should i try to get the axle for cheaper? it scares me a little bit, because the truck the 8.8 came out of only has 80,000 miles on it. is the rest of the axle more than likely ok? what about the clutches? if i get the axle i'll get superlift shocks it has on it, as well as lift blocks that are also on it, im just at a loss for what to do.

it's fine, when the spider gears look like that it's from the clutches being worn out to the point where the spider gears can spin without the side gears turning. I would get a clutch kit for that axle and call it good, if the chip on the gear tooth is just on the outer edge it's fine, it only matters if it's in the gear mesh.

Hose the inside out with brake clean or starting fluid to get all the gunk out.
