new shafts

Well after searching high and low for rear axle shafts for my dana 44 in my TJ with a 6 on 5.5 pattern I found these. Now my rear pattern will match my front axle. They put the wrong retainer plates on so I get to pull the bearing and retainer ring off of both my old axles and the new ones and switch them. Can't complain though.

what are the specs on the axles and where at did you get them?

I believe they are superior blanks (or at least I have heard) and this company finishes them to your specs.

http://www.dutchmanms.com/

From website:
Most stock (OEM) axles are made from 1039 material and are induction (case) hardened, have a .150 case depth, and a hardness of 52-54 Rockwell "C" scale. We use (1) piece forgings made from 1541-H material, a case depth of .300-.350, and a hardness of 57-60 Rc. The result of these upgrades yields a "Stronger than Stock" street and strip alloy axle. The hard case and soft core design enable the shaft to bend, flex and spring back. Properly executed, both chrome-moly "thru hardened" and an upgraded "induction hardened" shaft can achieve the same results in strength in the critical areas of torsional strength and life cycles. The design of an induction hardened shaft usually yields more bending (life) cycles than a thru hardened shaft.
