Post 9" Axle Lengths

Well, I've got a narrowed 9" (bought it already narrowed - 52")and need to order axles. Can anyone guide me as to how to measure each side to determine the lengths needed? I'm using a 31 spline Traction Lock.

Also, I'm considering switching to a Detroit Locker, to avoid the perils of cracks around the hat bolts, will that effect my axle lengths?

I'm told that's a problem area with high HP abuse, anyone had that problem?

Happy Motoring, Larry lmulneaux@gci.net

Log onto the Moser website. They have a diagram that shows all the measurements they need to construct the axle.

Well, I looked at the Moser site but all I could find was an area where I could enter some specific rear end measurements and order an axle. It wouldn't tell me what I needed, though I didn't go through the order process completely. I'd like to be able to figure what I need hoping to round up a used or discarded pair for now.

Thanks for your response, Larry

When I bought mine, all I did was call mosier. If you tell them over all length and if you want the pinion centered or not, they will calculate the rest. Just give them a call to varify what I am telling you and they will help you through any measurements they need.

Dittos to TurboS10. I narrowed my '56 Olds axle 8" and Moser made me up two custom axles that fit perfectly.
