    :mechanic::mechanic:I have a 4WD 85 F350 plow truck with an updated 7.3 that has a broken left front axle. Any one know where I can find a left front axle with 32 splines on long side 19 on short side, my mechanic tells me there are 9 axles for this truck. The axles are not available from Ford. I have tried numerous salavge yards.

    You sure because 85 F350 still use Dana 55 until 86 they switch to Dana 60 solid axle.

    I had a 1985 Dana 60 here at one point. BOM number proved it.

    As for finding an axle shaft... Id talk to a driveline shop near you, im sure he could get you one.

    Go to Warn Axles or Superior axles and see what it cost for a chromoly axle. The axle broke for a reason, why not upgrade while it is apart? I ran Warn axles with CTM u-joints in a D-44 for off road use. I sent everything to 300 Below for freezing and i never broke them after that. The axles and u-joints were warrantied for life too.
