Ford 8.8" and 9" Background Information
If you're not building a power house then you can/should give serious consideration to the 8.8" rear end
used in many late model Fords.
It is a good rear end and can handle a fair amount of abuse. (Because the 8.8" axle is adequate for many applications and because there are many more considerations other than width in making your decision as to what rear end to go with, there will be a little 8.8" info in this article)
However, the Ford 9" rear end has long been acknowledged by auto enthusiasts of all types (that means the Ch*vy boys too) as the strongest production axle assembly used to date. It comes in various widths and axle ratios and with various mounting systems (though mounted under leaf springs is by far the most common).
I havent gotten pictures of it yet but i will shortly hopefully, and its gonna be a project truck so im sure i will have many more questions to come, i know 9 inch is perferred, but i know you can get an 8.8 cheaper so depending on how money goes thats what im considering.
yes i do, it is a 1955 ford customline sedan, it is an all original car besides the tires and wheels, it has dual exhaust, the 6 volt system was changed to a 12 volt, and it has a hidden six track cd player, it has right under 19,400 original miles
thank you, and very nice i like that! and i do have many pictures, i just have to figure out exactly how to upload them on to this
Short answer to this is to upload the pictures to photobuck (or something similar) get a link to the picture then when typing your post click on the mountain scene icon and past the link in there and click OK.
