    To order:

    1. Use guide below to measure your finished length.

    Our dropped axles for your classic Ford F1 pickup will get the front end down where you want it. The center portion of the axle is made of 2" DOM tubing while the ends are CNC milled from solid steel. These axles give you 2" of drop on the '57-'60 chassis. Tie rod drops required, U-bolts sold separately.

    If using this axle in conjunction with drop springs, you may encounter bump steer or tie rod issues.

    • This provides 3"drop compared to the stock 53-56 axle, it provides
      2"drop compared to the 57-60 axle.
    • Dropped tie-rod ends 910 48640 may be required to provide tie-rod to spring
      clearance.
    • If you are also using dropped springs, they may need to modify the
      drag link / pitman arm to avoid bump steer.
    • Kingpin center to center = 53 3/4"
    • Spring pad center to center = 32 3/4"
    • Axle will provide a camber reading of -1.6 degrees
