Super Bell Axle 1041-F 46 Inch Filled Axle, 4 Inch Drop
SKU-7022852F
                        

When hot rodders heated and dropped Ford axles back in the day, they often filled the axle ends for extra strength. Super Bell now offers the filled look on its new 4" dropped I-beam axles.

Made from high-strength ductile iron, these are cast with the quality Super Bell has put into all its axles for more than thirty years.
