so yeah, i just found out today that my passenger side axel is bent! the wheel wobbles all around but i cant feel it while im driving. kinda weird. my question is, where can i get an axel from for a good price? and do i need to buy two or can i just get one? the bright side of this is an excuse to put the trac loc and gears in!!! hahaha. btw, i have a 9"

I would call some local shops first, you will save money and wait time in the long run. Also ask about the locker unit, they might be able to sweeten the deal if you let them supply and install everything. JMO

I paid a total of almost 1000 for the gears, Trac-Lok, installation kit and install in Utah. I got the gears from another member here, and the Lok from ebay. Install was around 400 with the kit. A 4wd shop did mine, and those guys are always breaking stuff, that's why I suggested a shop near by, they probably got extra axle's in stock.

Do you have the 28 or 31 spline, and is it the big or small bearing?

You can also use an axle from a 8" as long as the axle is the same length.
