Just courious that's all.   Around here all you see is tri-axles and they are liecenesed at 73280.     With both your lift axles it dosent look like you would have much of the load transferred to the front axle.

You can get a universal one that you have to copy the length from your original one and weld it together with a sleave but I don't think they hold up as good as the original mack part. That is my opinion after 3 macks at work. How bad is that to drive on wet pavement with the two lifts down? I drove a Brockway triaxle and it had 10-24s on the front I liked it better then the 425s on the newer trucks at work.

Not bad to drive in rain long as you don't have to much air in the drops..i run about 30 psi ..in my Tri axle I had 50 and couldn't turn had to pick the axle up or hit the ditch.lol so now I run 30 in it as well ..but all together the truck drives very well and pulled great..time for a oil change and air filters I only can pull bout 9psi of boost..
