    Where To Find The Nine Inch Rear Axle

    1967-1973 medium and big block Mustangs and Cougars 1966-1971 Fairlanes, Torinos, Montegos, Comets, and other Ford intermediates with big blocks.
    1957-1959 V8 Fords and Mercurys
    1977-1981 Lincoln Versailles & Trucks
    Types Of Nine Inch Axle Housings

    1967-1973 Mustang/Cougar - light duty, thinnest housing material, small axle bearings, 28 and 31 splines.
    1957-1968 passenger car and 1/2 ton truck - medium duty, stronger than Mustang type, 28 and 31 splines.
    Ranchero/Torino - heavy duty thick wall housing, 3.25 inch diameter axle tubes with flat tops.
    1969-1977 Galaxies (coils), Lincolns (coils), and late pickups (leaf)- 3.25 inch diameter all the way to the backing plate, coil housings have upper control arm mount
    How To Recognize Nine Inch Housing Centers

    1957 - no dimples, flat center band up the center of the rear cover, bottom drain plug.
    1958-1959 - two dimples on back of housing, flat center band, some had drain holes.
    1960-1967 - two dimples, flat center band, oil level hole in back cover.

    Tip On Shortening Nine Inch Axles

    1972 and earlier 31 spline axles have the ability to be shortened.
    28 spline axles are tapered and cannot be shortened and re-splined.
    1973 and later cars have a 5-on-5 bolt circle and the axles cannot be shortened.
    1967-1973 Mustang axles can be identified by wheel flange:
    Oval hole = 28 splines.
    Two large holes and counter-sunk center = 31 splines.
