Post axle weight

anyone know the weight of a bare housing for a 40? No knuckles or guts, just the housing.

Trying to figure out shipping weight.

a full/complete front weighs about 350lbs - an empty one is about 100lbs - my best estimate.

Nah,
I have an empty rear housing in my garage and it could not weigh over 50 lbs. Email me off line tonight and remind me to weigh it for you.

Hey Rabid,

I just sent out a couple bare axle housings yesterday, so I know exactly what they weigh. The front housing with a cardboard wrapping was 55 lbs. The rear was 47.5. JFYI, it cost $33 each to have the housings shipped from FL to CA via FedEx ground. Hope this helps...

It aint heavy, it's my axle <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">
Yep, that's what Ian (complaine) was thinking -that the axle weighs about 350 complete - the 100 was a guess. Oh well, nice try Ian! <IMG SRC="smilies/redface.gif" border="0">

Rob - I just realized I can say bye bye to the parking drum - yeee haw <IMG SRC="smilies/grinpimp.gif" border="0">
