What's in the Box

Info

Our 3" dropped axle for your classic '47-'54 Chevy half-ton pick-up will get the front end down where you want it. The center portion of the axle is made of 2" DOM tubing while the ends are CNC milled for solid steel. These axles give you 3" of drop.

The Chevy axles require the steering arm to be modified to accept rod ends or tie rods. U-bolts sold separately.

  • King pin to king pin centers = 50.5"
  • 6" drop measured from spring pad to spindle boss center
  • Axle accepts a 1-3/4" wide spring
  • Spring pad center-to-center = 26.75"
  • Center to center of u-bolt holes is 2.30" side to side
  • Center to center of u-bolt holes front to rear is 3.195"
  • Spring pad width is 29.072" center to center of the outer U-bolt holes
  • Axle Kingpin Boss Height:  2-7/16" (2.438")
  • Axle will provide a camber reading of -1.5 degrees

Notes

  1. Due to differences in OEM manufacturing, kingpin bearings measuring ½” thick will NOT work with this axle. If you have this size bearing, you will also need to order our Kingpin Kit 910-32130. The thrust bearing in this kit measures .225" thick. Also included is a .315" spacer (if needed). Normal shims and a shim kit are also included.
