    10 bolt axle problems, need some advice??

    Hi hope someone can help me out today!!
    Took Truck for MOT today and failed on rear wheel play, so thought must be bearings. Its a 10 bolt with the shafts held in with the c clips in the diff and bearings are fitted in axle casing.
    Pulled axle apart and found where the bearings sit on the shafts they have worn the shaft down, one side a lot worse then other!
    Is this common and is it new drive shafts?
    I take it i gotta count splines but where do you measure them from?
    Also whos best person to ring to supply replacments?
    Any help gratefully received as wanna get sorted for wheels day!!!

    Cheers Rich

    or have the shaft 'welded' (special type) and machined back to stock like you get done on crank journals.
