Any front axles that have 8 lug?

Hey guys, i just bought my corporate GM 16 bolt full float axle complete for 190 dollars and it is 8 lug. My question is are there any front axles that come stock 8 lug with driver side drop? The majority Ford axles come 6 lug so that won't be any good. Any ideas or is my only option is buy another chevy axle and buy a different transfer case? Im not considering an Atlas so that is way out of the question. Thanks

I'd like to see your 16 bolt

I think you maybe mean 14 bolt??

I cut my 14 bolt down to 13 bolts

some ford dana 44s had 8 lug pattern.

fwiw, if you're seeing 6 lugs, its a chevy axle, or possibly toy.

good luck. It isn't all F350 axles. Some have a longer drivers side tube than the others. I believe the axle you are looking for is a 78-79 Ford Dana 60. It is very popular with the wrangler crowd because of the correct offset differential.
