Durasolid stubs?

Anybody heard of durasolid brand stubs? Here is a link

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=250444418651

Seems like $75 for a chromoly stub is a good deal. Sent them a question about the warranty.

I bought a spindle off of ebay a few weeks back and was the same brand. It looked high quality, haven't had a chance to try it out yet though.

Thanks

I got this response about the stubs

Hi,

These are made from SAE 4340 chrome moly nickel
steel, dual heat treated and are as strong or
better than any other brand available in the
market



I was going to start out with some spicer 35 spline shafts but these chrome moly are cheaper. I may give them a try

The feedback has several complaints about shipping from India.

The Indian company that use to make all the YUKON front axles now has excess capacity and is pushing their crap front axles to anyone that will buy them. When buying them keep in mind that there is a reason Randy’s stopped having them make their front axles………… Remember you get what you pay for!

Haven't started putting my 60 back together yet. Still waiting on a passenger side knuckle that was supposed to be shipped to me a few weeks ago.

I think for the price, these can't be beat. I would be willing to try them. After all, they are cheaper than spicer steel shafts. I think they will hold me over until I can afford "good" shafts and then use these for spares.

I'll prove it for you!

That deal was 100% my fault! You were looking for an axle that no one makes, I was having them special made for you, I screwed up and had them done too short, again 100% my fault. I still have them in line for production even thou you canceled, but I take full responsibility for the mistake, but understand this was a custom and we can’t just turn them out in a couple days as a rule we don’t do customs at all but I wanted to get you handled. Guess that didn’t work out for either of us.

I do apoligise

There was a third party that really "got the shaft" on this deal also. I really hope he recieved a sincere apology as well. I also hope you understand why I cancelled the order, I have no use for shafts that will not be ready till the season is already over, when I ordered them right after the first event. I never expected them in a "couple of days" my friend, or even the 2-3 weeks I was promised, but I think anything over 4 months is unacceptable. Again, just my oppinion.

As for the cheap axles (read Yukon), I have been running them in my, and customers rigs for years, and have yet to get one back broken (dana 60 stuff) as long as the joints don't bind. But I do have a few Alloy USA 2 piece stubs laynig around, cause they make great conversation pieces.

Rick.

I am definately getting what I payed for!

They still have to better than 30 spline stock stuff, I'm too cheap to spend much more than 75 bucks a shaft

The Mac is correct. The W46100 part number is straight out of the Yukon Catalog, its was a Yukon created part number. Emmbros, who Durasolid is getting their parts from, used to be a Yukon and Randy's Ring & Pinion supplier. But as was posted in Randy's comment in the Zip Locker thread about the problem with some Yukon front axle part numbers, they came from Emmbros. When the quality and delivery became a continual problem, we started looking elsewhere for those parts.

The parts on Durasolid's site were all originally developed for Yukon Gear and Randy's Ring & Pinion. Some of them were very good parts, but Emmbros has let us down in too many ways, and too many times.

This is not a matter of copying parts, but Emmbros and Durasolid are flat out selling product that was developed for Yukon and Randy's.

I thought competion was good for the customer? If you're not doing business with them any more, what do you care? It's not like there's anything proprietary about a stock replacement stub is there?

I see they have some ford spindles and ford stubs on ebay still. When you receive them, post some pictures. I am curious to see how these will hold up

Has anyone tried the spools? I am thinking of trying a spool for a toyota 8" I read the reviews and opinions about the stubs and such. I am thinking it is a good deal, for $70.
