Author Topic:   Where to find ford 9" axle lengths
posted September 22, 2003 08:01 PM
really 2 questions - when measuring a ford 9" axle where is it measured from? From the face of the wheel mount surface to the end (29.75") or from the bearing end to the axle end (27.5") - which one do I ask for?

Also - does anyone have a cross-reference for what these axles came stock on?? They're 28 spline and have a 4.75" bolt circle (might have been re-drilled??)

Thanks in advance!

i take ith that it's a non floater rear end if it has 4 3/4 pattern it either has to be re drilled otr a custom axle

correct - it's a non-floater style rear end - and I figured it must have been re-drilled since I've never seen a ford with a 4.75" pattern...

Most people measure from the backside of the flange to the end of the splines. Has to be drilled.
