I was told that the car 31 spline axles are better than the truck 31 spline axles! Is this true? Why? How do you identify one from the other?

One of the two has a more taper to it than the other near the spline end. This is of course providing that you are reffering to 9 inch differentials.

first... truck axles are big ugly bastards, 5 on 5 1/2 bolt pattern and larger flange ,the shortest 31 splines are way too long for the cars.
