Axle Rebuild

Hey all, I have a 78' F-150 4x4 that I am working on restoring, I was wondering if anyone knew of a good place to take my front and rear axles to be rebuilt and what would it cost to have them rebuilt and powdercoated. I live in aurora, out by 470 and smoky hill rd.

Thanks!!

It's a distance for you but I can recommend a shop called AEA Automotive in Longmont for general purpose performance work. Small 3-man shop and the exact opposite of the gleaming floor, clean-hands shops you see at dealers, in the low rent part of town, but fair prices and good work from old time real mechanics. Easy to work with. I trust them.
Ask for Mike if you contact them.

I knew someone that recently had axle work done at 4 Wheel Parts, cost quite a bit, the pinion gear failed after a short time, but supposedly they fixed it for him again right away.

I don't know about the powder coating, though. Never got that fancy!
Mine are coated with this brown stuff that looks almost exactly like rust...

Thanks Bill for writing back! Yeah I have the same paint job as you, but I don't like the color!!

That is a little far. I have had some work done a drive shaft out of a toyota by I think it was Drive Train Industries. They seemed to do some pretty good work. Although I don't think they do powder coating.

I was hoping someone else might have some other places they might have used in the past.

I will look keep looking around, the axles are not off the truck yet so I have some time.

Thanks again!

Mike
