Rear Axle
#1
Bought a set of rear axle bearings only to find they are too big.
The place of purchase did not mention spline count, only that they
should fit my car. They don't. Got another set that is smaller and
and fits. So what is the difference between 31 and 28 spline as far
as application goes? I am assuming 31 spline is a larger axle.

New problem.
While replacing the bearing we discovered the axle
is grooved so we need a new axle.
Have not been able to find a '71 axle 28 spline.
Any leads? All parts catalogs and online stores
only list to 1970.

Any junk yard. Car or truck. And as the pictures in Kevins' post show, it's pretty easy to spot the 28 spline.

The problem with dumpster diving is you are buying
someone else's problem. We had no idea the axle was
grooved until the bearing and retainer were removed.
My mechanic tells me we can have a new one on
Monday, made from scratch.
