    I'd have to say a dropped stock 1932-1936 axle. :)

    I'll second that dropped original axle.
     
  4. I'm using a Chassis Engineering 4" drop Heavy 1932 axle.

    As long as it's a forged axle, it's good.

    Drop an original. I dropped one for my brothers truck and it looks sweet.
     
  7. Any stock Ford axle will look great and can be dropped. Several vendors on HAMB that are doing the dropping service.

    Don't use a cast axle if you go aftermarket. Make sure it is a forged axle.

    At the time I didn't have a dropped original so I put a SO-Cal forged I beam axle and hairpins under my deuce pu because I could use stock 37/41 spindles and they turn lock to lock without any bending of the arms. Incidently I've sold many hundreds of cast Super Bell axles and have had no problems.

    I've seen cast axles break...
