9 inch ford to 56 chevrolet

has anyone insalled a 9 inch ford rear end in a tri five chev. I think the distance from backing plate to backing plate is 53 1/4 inches, overall lenth is about 60 inches. I am going to move spring hangers to inside of frame . what I need to know is what year and type of car the 9 inch came out of. I have a 9 inch out of 73 ford 1/2 ton, it has a 300 gear with ford pos track I want to install 373 gear and use the pos track unit all help needed thank you . ray

As one of the moderators here, I would like to..
WELCOME YOU HERE...

I installed a 57 Ford 9 inch under a 55 Chevrolet years ago. It was 2 inches more narrow than the original Chevrolet rear end.


The most accurate way to measure a rear end is this way....

Brake drums vary in width so measuring off the backing plate leaves room for error.

Again ........WELCOME

Deuce..
