    if it's just the normal 20mm axle with the screw on endcaps like on a DJ1, i have one...

    (edit: i'm not sure if i have the endcaps though. so, i'm not sure that really does you any good)

    I guess there's a difference between the QR20 models and the 66/888 axle. I think the 55 and such are a half inch shorter than the 888?

    makes sense. as i was typing that out, it occurred to me the the lowers on the 888 seemed a tad bit wider than the lowers or the single crown lineup. sorry i couldn't help...

    Not a problem. I have to do some investigating as to whether it's the crowns or lowers. The internets say it's the crowns that creak. oh well...

    Yes you need a 66/888 axle. the DJ1 will not work, I've already tried that in a pinch before.

    What about a Jr. T axle? I may have one of those lying around.
