The Ford 9" rearend is the Godhead of all differential assemblies. It is available in many different widths and gear ratios and parts are everywhere. Do your research and get the strongest unit that you can afford and is the right dimensions for your truck. Don't forget to have the axles redrilled to the Chevy bolt pattern.
