Default 12 BOLT AXLE LENGTH ??

I'm rebuilding a 12 bolt to put under my 70 chevelle. Can somone tell me how to measure the axles that came out of the old housing?? Do I measure from the backside of the wheelstud flange or the front side?? Do you measure to the end of the splines or the whole shaft?? ops:

The face of the flange (outer face) to the very end or the axle. The number of splines is also used in conjunction with length to identify axles as well.
