Front Axle

Every time we took our project Red Sled '91 Chevy 3/4-ton out wheeling we had roughly 30 minutes of fun before one of the front axle halfshafts would explode into bits, so we knew that some upgrade there was a priority. Rough Country is the first company we have found that is offering a better-than-stock halfshaft, with an amazing three-year or 36,000-mile warranty on its heat-treated steel-slip spline shafts and six ball-fixed CV joints. Currently these shafts are designed for use on IFS Chevy lift kits that would normally use a spacer puck between the differential and the axleshaft and thus are made 2 inches longer than stock. However, a modified version could be put into the parts catalog if there is enough demand.
