I am looking for some information on the solid front axles from the early model toyotas. I believe the 8" is what it is refered to.

I have been doing alot of internet surfing and searching, and would appreciate some help in narrowing down some of the info i have found.

so here it goes:

- what are the weak points with the axles that i should be concerned about and look into replacing first?

- what is my best option for pushing out the wheel mounting surface to match the rear axles? I have seen just spacers, as well as a kit that moves the entire hub out.

( i believe i am trying to get out to approx 61.5" wms to wms)

- what is my best options for lockers for the front and rear axles for a daily driven vehicle? do the toyota e lockers hold up well?

thank you for all the help you guys can give me.
