The toyota rear axle looks pretty stout for my purposes,I dont think i will be asking it to launch me into outer space,or get me down the 1/4 mile in 10 seconds.Its my work truck.The only thing i dont like is the steep gear looking at darn close to 3000rpm at 60mph.thats winding up too high too quick.But i will run it til i can dig up the cash to get a different ratio installed.I would like to keep my running gear all ford,But free rear axles,strong built with disc brakes is nothing to get picky about..i like idea of disc brakes at all 4 corners..something i cant get in a 9in without spending shameful amounts of money.Believe me,if i had the extra cash i would go whole hog and buy me a nice currie 9in rear axle with disc brakes and the 'works'...actually i would buy 2 because my falcon convertible has asked santa for one too!..yeah i stopped asking Santa myself cuz he's a ***** and wont give me one in my stocking

This is a PG web forum. The cuss word filters are there for a reason.
Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.
