I need one rear axle for my 72 and would like to know of a place that I can buy a used one. Any suggestions?

Thanks

May I ask why you need a new one? is this because of the axle bearing?

I was going to say you can get a special axle bearing that is offset if you have a worn spot where the axle goes or at least for some models you can.

Possibly even a c-clip eliminator kit?

Wrecking yard? 72 - 79 8.5" 10 bolt axles will work if your car still has the original rear end.
for some reason the axle flange is bent... The old lady must have hit something. the rim lookis okay but I will need a axle for sure

It appears that an axle from an 8.2" 10 bolt will also fit. So besides 68 - 79 Nova and 1st gen Camaro, the axle from a 65 - 67 Chevelle will fit.

New from Summit Superior axles are $117 each, a pair of Moser axles are $260.
