Does anyone know if somebody makes a 28 spline spool? I am about to redo my rearend and have already purchased axles. Busted stock axle last weekend and messed up the spider gears in the tlock when it did, so going to a spool is a consideration, just cant seem to find one in 28 spline.

uhg, I don't know if anyone does or not, ideally you should upgrade to a set of 31 spline axles if they are within your reach. The increased surface area of the additional splines really strengthens the axles considerably.

Infact you might be able to pop in a set of aftermarket 31 splines and run a good 31 spline carrier such as the Eaton or a shimmed 31 spline Trak-Lok.

That is exactly what I would have done if I had known that I was going to end up having to change the carrier. I have bought 2 sets of axles in the past couple of months, the second was for a 5 lug conversion that hasnt happened yet. I have made up my mind to put these axles in so I am maybe leaning toward a spool or possibly a mini spool. That leads to another question. Anybody know the difference in the 2? I can find a 28 spline mini but not a regular one.
