6" Dropped Axle

February 11, 2015
This axle fit just like I needed it to and put tire where it should be for the look I want. It came packeaged in a heavy duty carton. The axle looks good and fits very well. Was easy line up and get the spring mounts welded up. All in all a great product.
No, I would not recommend this product.

You could use this axle on nearly anything you can dream. As long as the width is what you need then go for it.

With this being a bare axle with no brackets welded to it yet there is no left or right side. Once you mock it up and weld brackets on with the appropriate caster then it will have to be installed correctly left vs. right.

This 6" dropped gasser front axle will work under a 1929 chevy, you will need to buy the Speedway axle pads that are made to work with 1-3/4" wide springs

Can you use this axle with a 41 Chevy 1/2 ton pickup?

This axle could be used under your 41 Chevy pickup and you would still need the axle pads to weld on at the correct location to match up to the parallel leaf springs on your truck. The axle accepts 49-54 Chevy passenger car spindles but will NOT work with the original 41 Chevy pickup spindles.

Can this axle be used with cross steering. If so, do I need drop steering arms or will the flat plate steering arms work? If not, do you sell a drop steering arm for chevy 49-54 spindles?

The Chevy spindles are limited to the use of the flat plate steering arms and we apologize but dropped arms are not available. You do have the option of installing the tie rod and drag link on top or bottom of the arm and if needed use of a spacer is common to clear the springs satisfactorily. You also have the option of using two steering arms on the passenger side when cross steer is used and in this case the brakes would be mounted ahead of the axle.
