Try these guys, http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.advancedplating.com/main.htm . I don't
know how good they are, I've haven't dealt with them. They advertise in
Hemmings Motor News every month. There web site is nice though. They have a
price list with some general estimates. It gives you a little idea of how
much the work is gonna cost.

Hope this helps,

Yes, the chisel method is usually best, those things are a bear to press
off, mine couldn't be undone with a 40 ton press, came right off with a
chisel. Most new axle bearings come with the retainer in the box. Should
be available at any parts house. Speedy Sleeve should be available. This
is a Ford 9" rear end we are talking about here, not a Isuzu 200mm unit,
parts should be available in West Undershirt, Pakistan. Go down to the
local parts house with the broken parts in hand, and they should hand you
new ones over the counter.

You may have the 2 of the same side axles in your truck? Who knows.
Measure the length of the axle tube from the pumpkin to the brake plate,
this shuld show you a difference in lengths from one side to the other.

Actually your 300 should tow better than a 302, same size engine, 6 has
longer stroke, better torque, tows better.

In about 1992 One of the major car magazines (can not truck) did a test of
a 300 and 302 cid F-150 pickups. The six towed more and had a better 0-60
time.
