looking for a c body axle from later?? car...measuring 31 21/64 in length.
Mopar to ya!
That fits '69 wagon and 70-73 C-Body.
I have a 73 wagon 8 3/4 rear end for sale.
From what I could find:71-3 b body wagon, certain D100 trucks, and some C bodies. Not sure about the others.

So how exactly does one measure axle length? Is it the inner end to the inside edge of the flange?
Tip of the splined end to the outside of the flange.
Very kool chart!!
I'd think it difficult to accurately measure that without a huuuuge caliper or equivalent, the dimensions given are pretty finite for an angled measurement. But what do I know?
True, but given the next closest C-Body axle is about 1" different, it is close enough for government work.
The old school method to measure them accurately was to prop up the splined end with a block of wood against a back stop so that the axle is level and tight against the back stop. Then measure the distance from the backstop to the outer edge of the flange.
I use a metal ruler across the spline end and a tapemeasure parallel to the axle shaft w tape hooked on flange face.
Okay, if the next closest is 1" different then why not measure it to .0001"?
Thanks Dave, it's been a long day and I'm going to bed
Because Chrysler in their infinite wisdom decided that a axle 31 21/64th s long was the hot ticket
All these responses, and not 1 person asked what rear axle he had. 3 flavors were available in his words "Later" axle. Do you have a 8.25 10 bolt cover 27 spline axle? Do you have a 9.25 12 bolt cover 31 spline axle? Do you have a 8.75 30 spline axle?
8 3/4 axle ....apparently the 70-73 cars with 69 wagon had the 31 21/64 th s setup. Seems consistent to several sites. IDK
8.25 in a c body...yikes?!
9.25 in a c body....hmmmm....interesting! LOL!
Are you looking for axle length or housing width?
Actually just ONE axle, working on a 71 Charger project for my son. Trying to make his dream a reality.
