Are 27 spline chromly shafts strong enough for my 35" MTs and the locker? The stock axle shafts worked fine for over 2 years and was wheeling very often.
In a rear axle 27 vs 30 is far more important. However the front axle does not get the work load the rear does. add in you have an ARB, so its only locked when you need it, less stress etc. I think staying with your 27 splines and getting chromo's would be the route. As you stated, if one does bust you don't have spares and chances are non of your buddies will either if you go with the 30 spline.
