'99+ guys with aftermarket axles and 31 spline trac loks

It has been brought to my attention that it may possibly be necessary to grind down the ends of my axles, in order to have enough room to insert the crosspin. Anyone had any experience with this? My 31 spline traction lock has a 7/8" cross pin, and the axles have .290" of material after the c-clip groove.

Hope this makes some sense, but I had never heard of such an issue until a few days ago, and wanted to see if any others had experienced anything similar.

Thanks,

Mike, my Superiors went in without any modifications at all. They fit like a glove.

Let me know when you blow those clutches out in the new diff. I have another box full of them. LOL

Axles

I have heard of this before. It depends what differential your running. I know when you order Mosers now, that is one of the questions they ask. I beleive the axles for and Auburn have a little extra material on the end of them, or it might be the other way around....but it is not that unusal and its no big deal to take the extra material off if need be. Try to to get the axles too hot when doing this.

Yeah, that's one thing that had me a little concerned, as I really don't want to weaken the end of the axle by grinding it and ending up heating it too much, and twisting it on the first pass.

I did specify that they were to be used with a 31 spline traction lock, so maybe they took care of it.

Well hopefully I won't have to do any modifications to the axles like y'all. But hell, from the looks of it, these things aren't even going in soon, lol.
