    DavesMopar,
    You have a factory cone style SureGrip?

    Why do you need side and spider gears?

    I pulled it out of a truck/van rearend that had been sitting with a few other rear ends that are out in the open.....

    I have them soaking right now and but on initial inspection they are pitted..... I will take a better look after cleaning them....

    Okay here's both cones and both cone housings ...... I'm not seeing any marks were they bottomed..... should I go ahead and do the Machining and spacer kit since I've got it this far down????

    And I'm still not 100% sure what part I supposed to machine, looks like the bottom side of the cones... ?? ...

    Well evidently spider and side gears are not available as replacement parts......

    As this is not a daily Driver and will not be driven in the rain at all, I think I am going to just put a spool in it. ...

    I mailed a set of side and spider gears to FABO member 63spf, for free. I didn’t even charge him SH....
    PM him see if he still has them available.
    I believe he didn’t use them.
    If you’re not a FABO member, I can PM him.

    No I'm not a member over there, although I may sign up cuz I've got an a body 8.75 rear end I'm going to put up for sale here before too much longer I think......

    And thanks for the offer, but I'm really seriously thinking about the spool.

    Dr Diff has a lightweight spool for $100 , that's about what I would have in that cone style Sure Grip by the time I have it machined and pay for the shim kit I would imagine

    Ooo, an B 8¾". I was looking at one and might have committed to it (depending on his response), just an hour earlier.

    Spools are hard on stock axels.
