I went with Napa axles, they had both in stock which kinda shocked me. We will see how they hold up. Thanks for all the advice/ help!

I sent him my OEM axle as a core for a rebuild. I paid shipping one way and Raxles (Marty) provided the return shipping to me. The rebuilt axle was quite nice - one fine piece of mechanical engineering! It was last year - so hope he would still continue if you provide the core.
