Nice welding

April 18, 2014
Other than wishing these were made a little wider, it's a good product. Heavy tubing. A wider axle (king pin to king pin) such as 50 & 52" would work better with a wheel that has a lot of back spacing for old trucks. Wheels spacers are an option but tend to be a little tough on wheel bearings.
Yes, I recommend this product.

No perch bosses cannot be added to this particular axle and would be up to the builder to fabricate as needed. We do have a 3” dropped axle with perch boss installed under part number 91035121 or we have an axle with the brackets installed to accept a spring pivot under number 91335113 or 91335213 if so desired.

Sorry I am not able to build custom drop axles. The only way I can do a custom width is a straight axle.

On a 48” dropped axle the bend on the tube axle starts at about 34” or 18” from center. Most brackets for hot rod use are placed at 32”. With a little modification of the spring pad you may be able to go slightly wider by altering for the raise at the radius. Either way the 27.5” should easily fit.
