My sons 97 f-150 extended cab 2 wheel drive has a very minor bent axle on the drivers side. I have been looking for a new axle for him and the most common one listed is for a 9.75" ring gear. But I have seen a few listed that fit an 8" ring gear.
His axle code is H9 which I found is a 3.55 Limited slip rear end, but I can't find any information as to what size ring gear I may have.
The numbers on the rear end tag don't match anything I have seen listed anywhere.
Rear end tag...6869B R 3L55 88 7F12
Anyone have any ideas?
I went ahead and ordered him a 9.75" since this is the most common, but I just have this bad feeling I may have the wrong one
also you can count the bolts in the rear end. An 8.8 will have 10 bolts. A 9.75 will have 12 bolts. I have heard of the rare occasion where the tag may not match the rear end. Just to be sure, count the bolts.
