    Hi Don.

    I looked at the SDGearaxle.com website and I didn't see anything new, but I'll give them a call one of these days.

    Meanwhile my local axle guy came up blank - we agreed that Moser, custom axle, or similar outfit, is probably the only source for a new axle. Moser wants something like $244 just for the two axles - no bearings or seals or wheel lugs.

    Here are the specs on this axle:

    28 spline, 31.313" long, 5 7/16" lugs on 4.75 bolt circle, 1.4" dia bearing surface. C-clip groove at one end, of course.

    Just a little note to post a progress report. After installing the Masterpro rear axles bearings 10 years ago, and some 10,000 miles later, the rear axle seems to be doing just fine. No noise, I don't put a lot of miles of the van, obviously, but I'd like to take some pleasure trips in my (now) retirement this spring. Not sure it would make it cross country, but some old sites I used to visit in Central California in my youth might be in store. We'll see!

    I also invited some folks from the Facebook Chevy Van site to view this thread, since the topic came up.

    Later, and thanks for all the help!
