So, last weekend the left side axle broke in my '56 Chevy 150. Although it was disappointing, it wasn't really shocking. I wasn't shocked because, although the car doesn't really bite/always spins for 50-75 feet "out of the hole", it is a little over 500hp/500 ft lbs thru a stock(other than the posi) rearend. I have several questions 1) If stronger axles(1541?) would solve my problem, that would be great. Any chance of that being a sufficient fix? 2) IF I can get by with just replacing the axles, what do I need to do to check out my posi center(since I have it apart anyway)? 3) If stronger axles are not going to do the trick, do I have any GM options that will cost less than a few months mortgage payments? Any chance a 10 bolt would do? I believe a first gen Camaro is already the correct width. I don't race the car, but I do "clean the tires off" once or twice a month during nice weather.
