    Try a Big truck drive train ( med/ heavy duty) parts places too. I have one near me that can make up the hollow shafts and have the solid shafts in stock for a lot of different size trucks. They had all the drive train stuff I needed for a F-250 & Bronco II at 2/3's the price of Ford OEM. They were OEM, Spicer,Dana parts. I bought 2 of the solid front axles shafts, and had them shorten the drive shaft from the transfer case to the front axle. They had all the little bit's and piece's I needed. Get a few 4x4 magazines they have ads for builders and suppliers of shafts in them.
