1948 Ford F2---rear

Hi;
I Have A 48 Ford F2 , I Would Like To Put A Ford 9" Rear In It And Move The Leaf Springs Under The Frame Rails To Allow Larger Tires If I Install A Frame Kit I Can Get 21" M/t Under It With Lots Of $$$$ Or I Can Use A Used Ford 9" And Move The Leafs Under The Frame And Pick Up Aprox. 6 More In. Of Space Then A 18" Tire Would Fit With The Rite Offset Rim And Only Lose 3" But Save Money Now The ???? Has Any One Done This And What Should I Get The Rear Out Of?

rear end

Check measurements on ford pickups. 9 in were first used on 57's and are under a lot of older pickups and vans. You might want to buy the mounting brackets to move the spring under the axle and C notch the frame if you need more clearance. I think the front brakes can be changed to use 1/2 ton pickup parts to have wheels match
