    It's quite easy to do it yourself. you have to cut the ends off that hold the bearings on...they're welded on by volvo- shorten the casing,knock the ends back on weld them up...making sure they're lined up and square.you may be better making a jig up-a thick bar to go through axle and machine some spacers to clamp to diff and axle ends to keep it all square..i used MDF for spacers and a scaffold pole for bar.simple really. i have some narrowed volvo shafts im selling:stock resplined and moser.

    It seems like you've been down this road before, what is the going rate for having a set of axles resplined? As a Machinist I can do them for myself, I'm just curious about whether it's worth setting up or should I just buy them pre made.

    thanks
