    I narrowed and rebuild my Ford 9 inch. I will installed Torino axle ends and a Willwood brakes.

    This is one of the jigs I used to measure how much to cut. It gives you the centerline and the axle length once the rearend is narrowed. In this pic I marked my cuts.

    The cuts are made, its time to weld on the new axle ends.

    Using this jig allows me to weld on the axle ends square. The axle ends come beveled and I also beveled the axle tubes for maximum penetration. I also took advantage of mocking up the rearend while it had no weight. This allowed me to move it with ease and weld all the 4 link mounts.

    Ready for paint

    Cut to fit axles ready for installation.

    Once painted I installed a new 3rd member. Its Posi with 3.70 gears.

    Rearend is complete and ready to install in the car.

    If you can use a tape measure, cut a straight line, weld, and have the right tools the sky is the limit to what you can accomplish.

    Very nice work Bam! It's coming along great! I'm surprised those lincoln rear ends still pop up. They were hard to find around here at one time due to all the roundy round guys.

    I had a 9 inch IRS on my GTO. I first went with a WAV-Trac. It could not handle the horsepower and they refused warranty. I went with a Strange S-Trac and never looked back. Drove it street and strip at 1200+ RWHP for nearly 4 years. Strange had excellent customer service and warranty. They rebuilt the center section every other year free of charge.

    Love your attitude! That's what make this a fun hobby - anything you can conceive is "do-able". I know I have surprised myself from time to time with what can be done with a design on a yellow legal pad and a cup (or two) of coffee to to contemplate.

    Your work is certainly among the best anywhere!

    I did not plan to do another frame off but I could not help myself. I just seen a lot of things I wanted to change. I decided to install a Summit Racing Frame Bracing Kit for Trifive Chevys.
