Daemon's Project: Ford 9" rear end.

I started my 9" project last week wednesday. This was an easy project but I took my time on it. It should be done this week and tested soon.

Parts:
-narrowed 1979 Ford 9" by 3 inches on both sides.
-5.13 gears and a detroit locker.
-Dutchman alloy axles
-TSM disk brake conversion using front chevy calipers (no parking brakes)

The 8.8 taken out and 9" placed under the explorer

I need some shock tabs installed and the drive shaft flanged end replaced with a 1330 yoke. More pics and updates in a couple days. :chug:

The 9" third came with the 1330 yoke. I had to take my driveshaft at a shop to get lengthened and have a 1330($30 from the shop) yoke welded at the end replacing the 1310. <---*edited*

It is still 1310 and there are no vibrations. I went with a chevy front caliper, so no parking brakes.

Thanks bmxking5.
