Best C3 Rear Wheel Spindle

Can anyone recommend the strongest (best) USA made spindle to replace the stock one with high face runout? Should I get a Tom's Differential spindle, or is it better to remove the studs from the stock one and have the face light cut on a lathe to reduce the runout instead?

I would say Toms.

Gary does all the iron C3 Diffs here.

I have used Tom's diff parts for C3 & C4 Dana 44s.
Built 1 for a guy while on CFC4.
250 Shot of nitrous with a 396 SBC for 750 Hp +.
Drag Racer with a,1996 C4..
Ran low 11's.
Nothing broke in his Diff I built.

Ok.
Tom's has Top Notch parts for Corvette C2-C3-C4.

When I get a Dana 44 Vette Diff to work on Tom's is my 1st stop for parts.
