hes right, but that particular front axle has a high demand so you should be able to get good money for it.

Look at the tag on the axle for 4.10 or 3.54.

Lift one side lock in both sides and spin the hub around exactly 2 times counting the trips made by the D-shaft or yoke. If it goes around 3 1/2 times it's a 3.54 if a smidge over 4 it's a 4.10 and so on.

YES, it is mandatory, if you don't you will get a death wobble. Locate a trac bar mounting bracket before you install the axle.
