Front end rebuild

May 19, 2013
Great parts except for the center link, which should be labeled NOT for Early 1964. In order to use this part with the orig pitman arm, you must use a 5/8 taper drill and ream out the pitman arm. Other than that it works great.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Inner tie rods are incorrect.

October 26, 2012
The inner tie rods have the grease fitting on the back side of the joint, not on the end like original. Grease fittings will hit cross member and cannot be greased after installing, if you get that far.
Cons:
  • get what you pay for.
No, I would not recommend this product.

Would Recommend.

March 07, 2010
Was very impressed at the price and completeness of the kit. As another mentioned before, some of the nuts and bolts are a mix of metric and standard? At least I had to use a metric wrench on the tie rod sleeve adjuster and everything else seemed to be standard sizing. Oh well! Fit good, drives awesome! I didn't know the Chevelle could ride so tight!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Good Value, Some Issues with Hardware

Speedway has done a good job of putting everything together to make a complete kit. The price was very competative. There was a problem with the hardware, but it was easy to change out with common bolts available from [...].
Pros:
  • Fit okay
  • Complete for Upgrade
  • Good Value
Yes, I recommend this product.

Currie 1964-66 GM A-Body 9 Inch Crate Rearend Kit
(Part #91006466)
                        

Now you can have the strength and serviceability that Ford drivers have enjoyed for years underneath your GM vehicle. Currie Crate Rearends are built using the stock overall width, pinion offest, and mounting points of your original rear axle housing, making it a 100% bolt-in upgrade. Designed as a bolt-in kit for 1964-66 Chevelle, El Camino, Skylark, Cutlass, LeMans/GTO applications.

  • All new 9-Plus heavy duty housing
  • Urethane upper control arm bushings installed
  • 31 spline performance axle shafts
  • 60-1/4" width
  • Torino-style late model large bearing housing ends
  • Third member studs installed
  • Axles drilled for stock 5 on 4-3/4" wheel bolt pattern
  • 7/16"-20 wheel studs pressed into axles
  • 1/4” thick heavy duty bearing retainer plates
  • Tapered Timken style wheel bearings pressed onto axle

Note that '64-'66 Chevelles had a flat style spring pad on the housing which was used up to early '67. This housing may be used in your '67, but you must first check the spring pad type to make sure it is the right one for your vehicle.

Note: Works with Speedway rear disc brake kits, 11" Ford Explorer disc brakes, and Wilwood disc brakes. Third member sold separately.

To learn more about Currie's 9+ rearends, check out these Frequently Asked Questions on 9-Plus Housing (Link)

How to Measure Your Housing Tech Tip (Link)

Need a certain length not found on our site?  Check out Currie's 9+ Rearend Calculator to have specially sized axles or rearend housings made for your specific application.  Custom orders will be built and processed directly through Currie Enterprizes and shipped to your door. For ease of ordering, please refer to Currie's Dimension Diagram

Installation Notes:

When installing new axles in rearends with posi traction differentials, be sure to install the driver's side axle first to keep the splines properly aligned.  Failure to do so may move the two splined gears out of alignment, and it may be difficult to install the driver's side axle properly if the passenger side axle is already installed.

If installation of passenger side axle is done first it may require two people when installing the driver's side axle, with both parties rotating reach axle until splines are in line and the driver's side axle fully sides into the housing.

To ensure you get the most out of your new 9 Inch components, Currie recommends that you perform a proper break-in process:

  • Use a name brand mineral-based gear oil, preferably 85w140 (Extremely high quality synthetic oils may be used once break-in process has been successfully performed)
  • Place vehicle on jack stands and let the rearend spin while the vehicle idles - run transmission in both forward and reverse periodically throughout the process
  • Continue to run the rearend until the pinion gets hot (place hand on bottom of the differential housing to verify this)
  • Proper break-in allows:
    • The ability to install new axles and hit the track the same day without worry
    • Extended life for rearend components
    • Keeps the quality and life of your gear oil

Note: If you find that your rearend is running somewhat "tight" be sure to add Currie's 9+ Friction Modifier to "loosen up".  If a more aggressive performance is desired, Friction Modifier is not needed.
