Post 9" Housing Flange to Axle Flange

Haven't been on for a while, hello to all.

I've got an empty 9" housing (don't know from what) I'm putting in a '68 Nova. I will be tubbing it, narrrowing the 9" and have already purchased a disc brake kit.

I can't buy axles until I know how narrow I'm going, and can't determine that until I know the distance (typically) from the housing flange to the axle flange. I've visited some sites referenced here but find a wide variety of differences in different vehicles. One I note for a Bronco is 12" total difference, while a certain Mustang is 4 3/4!

Can anyone steer me in the right direction?

NAIRC, if you see this I dropped a note on another venue about Carlsbad, I remember and raced it in the '60's and revisited a year ago, man I don't remember it being that short, and the pits over the hill, it was a riot to remember the old days! Even though much slower, I can't imagine the AA/A's and TF cars making it! It's in terrible shape, was very sad for me to see it like that!


When I die I want to go peacefully - in my sleep, not yelling and screaming like passengers in my car...

Not sure what it is your looking for but here are some sites that have mucho info on 9 inch axles.


If you need to know what length your axles should be after shortening the housing here is a <a href="http://www.moserengineering.com/moser_interior/orderinginfo.htm]web page[/URL] that has ordering info for your axles. Generally you provide the dimensions to the axle fabricator and he does the rest, you might want to specify the disc brake kit you are using so there are no unpleasant surprises.

I hope this helps.

you won't know your flange to flange width till you figure out your wheel and tire combo get them set them up under the body then measure wheel mount inside to inside ,that will be your total width then with some basic math you can figure your axle lengths and tube lengths, are you going to center the driveshaft? etc, one axle is longer than the other so figure that also.
