I'm looking to put a 9" into my truck, and would like to know what is the year and model of the 9" that came with rear disc brakes? Thanks,

Two disc 9" I have/had were a 78 Lincoln Mark V, and the other was a 79 Lincoln Versaille.

The Mark V is the wider one - about 65", is 4-link, and has 5-on-5" bolt pattern.

The Versaille is narrower - 58.5", is leaf-sprung, and has 5-on-4.5" pattern.

9 inch axles with a 5 on 4½ bolt pattern had small bearings. Full size Lincolns and ½ ton trucks had a large (3.15") bearing

Ok, maybe I'm really screwed up, but this info goes against what is on my garage floor. I went to Pull-N-Save and got a rear from a '79 Versaille, unless someone swapped trunks it said Versaille on it. It is big bearing, coil sprung, and I'm not sure of the wms to wms but I thought it was about 58-59 inches from the flanges at the end of the axle tubes. Just thought I'd through that in. I can double check this evening. Oh yeah I forgot, it has 5 on 4.5 bolt pattern.

I'd be trussing it, changing gears, and would also have to get new axles with a 6 bolt pattern. I'm putting it in my toyota for the strength and durability. I'm putting a turbo inline 6 so I'll be needing the strength. Thanks, I'll look into it. I'm not interested in one right now, but once the engine swap is done.

Weird man... totally weird. The Versaille 9" I had we took out of the car and bolted straight into my buddy's '65 Mustang on the same weekend. Leaf springs in both cars. Had to exchange u-bolts for ones that fit the larger 3" tube. This was 58-59" from WMS to WMS.

Sounds like you had a bigger Lincoln diff. 58-59" flange to flange on the axle tube probably works out to 65" from WMS to WMS.
