Axles

The axle on my truck, 1960 f100 4x4, snapped to the right of the differential. I welded it together so i could move it around my yard and needless to say I need a new axle. I found a 59 f100 i could buy for relatively cheap. Can I pull the third member and put my gears into the new axle from the new truck and put that on my truck?

If you are talking about "an axel shaft", that broke, why not just swap one from the '59 and save yourself a lot of work. If you are talking about "an axel housing", the hollow tube which the axel goes into, in answer to your question, yes!

The housing broke. The shafts and gears are fine. Thanks! I looked at it today and when I got there I wasn't sure what to look for. The housing looked similar but I just didn't know if it would work. I can finally get my truck back on the road! Also the new axle housing has spring welded to it. Is this a problem? Can I just grind them off?

Whaaaat? Just don't reuse the springs!. Welding the springs to the rear axles? Suddenly I don't feel like such a hack.......

I was a little surprised to see someone had done that. They didn't weld the leaf springs to the truck but to the inside of the leaf spring they have a regular helix spring welded from the axle housing to the chassis.
