You will more that likely have to go with someone such as Currie to get one with the brackets already installed.

Is there such thing as a cheap Ford 9" rear end? LOL I found a fellow on eBay selling a "Ford rearend" with a starting bid of 100.00 and no reserve. It happened to have come from a '69 Cougar. This peaked my interest knowing it would bolt right into my Mustang. When I looked at the one photo he had posted I noticed it was a Ford 9"-er...I was stoked. I got the rearend for 100.00.

My point is that you 'could' find a similar deal and get it cut down and modified for your Chevy for less 675. I was going to do that and found for about 189.00 I could get the housing and axels cut down. If it has a 31 spline axels...they usually won't cut down the 28 splines because they are tapered. The cost was less for just the housing. Also, many of the older Ford F150 and larger series pickup trucks have 9" rearends.

hope that helped a little

pull out the axel and count the splines...
Personally, $675 for a 9" that's ready to bolt on sounds like a great deal to me, unless I'm getting confused again...

if I'm not mistaken...the 28 splines have two holes/caveties cast in the end near the lug holes and the 31 spline have one large oval shaped hole/cavety cast in it....just double checked...thats correct. Just look and the exposed end of the axel. oval hole=28 two round holes=31.

Great tip, thanx! Now watch me use that to make an expensive decision some day and have the only exception that Ford made! MURPHY LIVES!!!!

Are you sure you want a ford 9 inch? in my opion the 9" is way over rated a good 8.5" 10 bolt chev should serve you nicely any why spend more money that you have to. Or if you must have a real stout rear end consiter a dana 60

Are you looking for one already set up for your specific car? If you can do a little welding and fabrication yourself, you can get the complete rear end including third member/gears, brakes, axles & housing at Pick-A-Part, usually for $100 or less then adapt it to your car.

I can't find one the proper length,so then i would have to cut one down.For the difference in money i figured i would just buy a housing already set up so i have no problems.I spent all day on the net trying to find a package cheaper than $675 and close enough that shipping isn't going to kill me.Does anyone know of any good sites.

Oh yeah, overated. It's only been one of the most widely used factory rears in everything from Street Rods to Bracket Cars. I'll bet you don't even know what makes the 9inch rear so desirable.
