ford 9 in ?

are hp and lp 3rd members interchangeable? can you remove a lp 3rd member from a housing and replace it with a hp 3rd member? if the housings are different for a lp and hp , how do you tell the difference if your buying just a housing with the axles and brakes?

Yes, you can remove a low pinion third member and replace it with a high pinion third member.

you do know the HP 9" is just a custom case from currie, to allow to run HP 8.8 gears, right? there is no factory HP 9"

i wasnt sure if you had to have the currie housing in order to use the hp 3rd member. im looking at buying a housing with 31 spline shafts, discs, and no 3rd. he says its supposed to be a currie housing.
