This thread was just brought to my attention so sorry if Im late to respond.
Just to clear things up, Camburg doesn't make axle shafts, we build the housings, build hubs and can get axle shafts made for your Camburg housing.
When ordering a rear end through Camburg, we offer several diff options when it comes to axle shafts all at different price points. Price points vary on material & processes. some are cheaper to make than others.
We offer an HT alloy shaft which is the one in question. It's on the more budget side of the axles we can provide.
Because of that, the company we get them from cuts down their stock, they spline it, we have them tap the ends for us to make minor adjustments and send them out the door. They're not so much concerned with it being tapered after the splines so you can run it through a drive plate or fully engage the longer spline into the center section.
We also offer an axle shaft that is a much nicer piece that is tapered down after the splines, they're polished and look awesome. they're also twice the cost of an HT alloy axle & takes a few weeks while longer to get because it goes through a diff process.
We (Zack & I) talked on the phone a few times and emailed back and forth several other times.. We went over the different axle options and the shorter spline side going into the center section being ok. I don't remember telling you that they were in fact made wrong, or that I wouldn't give you an option for a different axle manufacture.
I've attached a picture for reference on how much spline engagement we are talking about between your current axles (short side) and a new set of TCS axles (long side)
If you want to swap them, I would gladly order you a new set of axles for the difference in cost, you told me you wanted to get it running by the weekend. but you'd have to give me the current axles back new like they are now. This is still an option if you didn't go run the axles this weekend.
If any wheel company sent you the wrong wheels , they offer to send you new ones but they wont tell you to drive on the ones you have for now. they'd ask you to make sure they stay boxed up and new, I would ask you do the same with the axles.
Unfortunately, I am no longer part of the day to day sales team at Camburg, but it does not mean I cannot make sales or get involved if the service/parts you are getting from the sales team are not up to par. It is my job to get involved when customers ask to speak with management or when some of my less experienced sales guys are lost. I encourage all of you to reach out to me direct if you have any issues with tech help, quality control or general race parts and I will do my best to make it right. We are not in the business of pissing racers off or giving people bad parts. I try to work with everyone and I always go out of my way to at least make sure our customers get what they pay for. We all work hard to build these trucks, Ive been on the sales side and the customer side of it and I try to put myself in every customers shoes when it comes to purchasing these expensive parts.
