In search of undrillled dropped tube axle

Looking for a dropped tube axle for my early Chevy rod project, however all the ones I find in the larger catalogs and parts houses are pre-drilled for a 4-bar/radius rod batwing setup.
Since I'll be u-bolting this axle to the front parallel leaf springs on my early Bowtie, I don't need the extra holes. All I need is the dropped tube (4"), with kingpin / spindle mounts on each end.
Anyone have a link or number where I can pick one up?
Thanks,
Kurt

Axle

Speedway part# 913-35111 has welded on brackets that could be cut off and replaced with the spring pads for your app..and it is a 4" drop..

that axle uses 49-54 chev spindles..might be worth a try..

That'll do

Wow, missed that one at Speedway. I have their catalog on Cd and it can be hard to navigate at times.

Still hard to believe that there isn't someplace / some guy out there making just plain ol' dropped tubes for us Chevy and Mopar (front leaf spring) rod builders.

Thanks for the heads up!
