    It is not a T axle. I have two just like it. They are much heavier and much more stout. The T spindles fit and it is my understanding they were used on many racecars. If my memory hasn't totally left me I think the axle is from an Overland. Somebody on here will remember.
     
  2. Actually those look to be more chevy spindles to me. I used a pair in my T, nice easy way to get and extra inch drop. Can't say anything bout the axle other than I agree its not a T.
     
  3. Yup, those are Chevrolet spindles!

    I believe that is an Oakland or Overland front axle. They are a bit heavier than a T and showed up on dirt cars back in the day. :)
