Yep that's correct. F2 didn't even have any back shocks!

djdyoungbuck is starting off with a positive reputation.
Should i replace the rear deferential if im upgrade the engine?

i have a 1951 ford f1 that i am putting a ford 302 engine that is rated at 350 hp. i am worried if i keep the original deferential i will twist it off if i decide to giver a lil when im driving, Because they original only had about 85 hp with the Flathead v8.

Welcome to the site. This is a very old thread. You will have better luck starting a new thread with your info and question. The more detail the better.

The rear axle in your truck is a Dana 44. They are pretty stout if in good condition. The bigger issue is if you want the stock 3.92 or 4.27 ratio.
