The chassis brackets are made for application fit only, if you supply the front and rear brackets it will most likely fit. Speedway has all types of spring hanger brackets.
October 06, 2011
John
The mounting brackets for the frame are designed to utilize the factory bracket holes where the brackets were riveted to the frame. To use on another application would require the builder to drill all necessary holes and mount the hanger brackets in the correct location so as to center the wheel in the fender opening. The frame itself may also require modification to accept the brackets. The axle housing designed for is 3” diameter which should work with many applications and requires welding to the housing.

Give your 1935-40 fat-fendered Ford state-of-the-art ride and handling with the Speedway composite leaf rear suspension kit. Composite springs are the new wave of performance spring material. They are lighter than steel, respond faster, last up to 5 times longer, and will not rust or corrode like traditional leaf springs. The monoleaf design also ensures noise- and friction-free performance, while providing the softest, smoothest ride imaginable.

  • Monoleaf design is free of interleaf friction & squeaks
  • Springs will not corrode and are paintable
  • Stainless brackets can be polished
  • Brackets add much needed reinforcement to rear of frame
  • Spring rates matched to application
  • Smooth ride
  • Gas charged shocks

Kits include a pair of springs, stainless steel mounting brackets, gas-charged shock absorbers, and hardware. Order optional bolt-on rear sway bar 916-43500 for increased handling control.

Currie Rear Axle Installation Instructions

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.
