Thinking of buying them at Walmart. I did get one there on Saturday, I looked for others but came up empty. Might have had the same idea I had, buy every one in stock.
I did a search on ebay and found a bunch. Most about the same price my wife spent ordering me one from amazon last week.

Tried for the last week but it seems either my Wal-Mart isn't stocking them or the earlybirds are picking them out when the store opens.

I found one at my local Walmart yesterday - $1.18 + tax.   Its now happily sitting on my desk with my other little AMCs.

Looks like there are more in stock at Amazon.
I measured the 3.5" from the outboard side of the inner housing flange where it meets the diff housing, so seeing that the bearing sleeve runs through that, I would say that total possible bearing travel is 4".

And it was through carquest, same part number as the advance listed above.
Yep; should be 4 inches as rmick said - even 3.5 is a wee bit shorter than it should be.  I think the axle dudes are only looking at total axle length and bolt/spline pattern.  Probably don't even think about travel within the housing.   That's what happens when the bean counters run the show.
These from Advance Auto Parts are supposed to be about 4 inches on the inner Part # NCV82001
Just got the replacement shafts, for the ones that I bought through autozone, that were too short in the inner bearing housing.  Two shafts, identical "new" unit box!a, same par, numb!r, but one of the shafts inner housing was an inch shorter... 2.5" versus the correct 3.5".

How can they be sending qrong eimension parts, mixed withbcorrect ones?  Quality control nowadays seems nonnexiwtent......

It’s been years since I hear from you guys. I’m almost done with my AMC Eagle stuff so I can move back to Canada. I have a 2.72 vacuum diff that I considerer doing a cable for along with the clutch and brake pedals. The snow just melted and the stuff is getting loaded up. I’m near Seattle and I sure could have used Brown Betty this past winter. For a 2.72 rear axle someone wanted, Jeep Cherokee and Wagoneer with 6 cyl 999 auto were common (need axles from an M24/20 in an XJ to fit it into) and some YJs too.
