Question 9" ford in 48 chev frame

Hi, I'm installing a ford 9" rearend in my 48 chev frame. I over looked the fact that the stock rearend was set back 2" from the center pin. I was wondering if there is any offset lowering blocks out on the market.

Thanks,
Russ

Cool

Another alternative is check with Eaton spring or Posies, they can make you springs with an offset center bolt and you can get a lower and better ride,

HI Fat48chev,
Nice to see other 48's being built. I am just begining to work on mine. I have a 2 dr. Fleetline Aerosedan. I would like to know about the ford 9" final drive. How do you determine which one is a nine incher? Next question, I just traded a 92' cougar in on a F-150 and I love the ride the mercury had with the independent rear suspension. Will that differential fit the frame of the 48' Bow Tie. I have no idea if that was a 9" or not.

Hello,

Just wanted to say that I am building a 1948 2dr fleetline aerosedan myself. I am doing a frame swap. I traded a 79 camaro for a 89 chevy s10, and I am now in the process of stripping the s10. The 48 is already stripped entirely. I'm about to get into the nitty-gritty of this project, but there is alot of information available about this in this message board titled "1948 chevy on 1989 chevy s10 frame". I too am happy to see more 48's being restored. We dont have many at all here in south florida. Good luck guys.
Richard :p

Great '48 BowTie,

This link should answer most of your questions about the 9" Ford rearend.

<a href="http://dfwmotorsport.com/Fairlane/9inchrearends.htm" target="_blank">http://dfwmotorsport.com/Fairlane/9inchrearends.htm</a>

The rear in your Cougar was not a 9" by the way. And the ride had little to do with the rear axle and everything to do with the springs and shocks.
