Allready spoke with Devin at 6:00 pm, First dibs. What wms are you looking for?, Or what vehicle is the 9" going into? Packnrat [Larry] has a big bearing for sure. DBronco69 is looking to make sure he has a BB 9" hsg.
I'm a DUMBASS, A 57 chevy is pretty wide. You will want a fullsize passenger car rearend, Packnrats may be perfect. I believe it came out of a fullsize lincoln, Or you may need a fullsize truck or van axle. The van is the widest of the axles, Hell shoot me your number and I will call you to try and help you with the axle. I am a ford guy, So I can't really help with the GM questions
I don't want it stock width or I'd stick with the stock axle, I don't think it is that wide anyway. I want to shave about 5" off of the stocker but I am not sure what that width is. Figured why cut a stocker, might as well start with something with more potential..
Damn good point, Might as well go 31 spline axles. Unless you will be running big HP, It's cheap insurance. FYI all early fords had 28 spline axles, I think trucks started using them around 75 , broncos in 78. I'm not sure if the passeger cars used them at all, Just trying to shed a little light for you. Aftermarket 31 spline axles run around $300 or so
