After losing sleep over the possibility of a broken axle leading to a folded rear quarter panel, we decided to install aftermarket axles. When you think of axles, Moser is the first name that comes to mind, so that's who we decided to call. They are so familiar with the '69 Camaro that we didn't have to measuring anything, they said we know what it takes.
To be consistent with our desires to go 10s, we had to install an axle retention device, i.e. C-Clip Eliminators (That's the block of aluminum near the axle flange).

I guess the backing plates had never been removed, every bolt snapped off.
The broken bolts were actually rusted into the housing flanges. Requiring a punch and hammer.
Our new axles came with 1/2" studs so the last step was to drill out the drums to fit - no rocket science here.
