    Got a free 9"

    So i got a free 9" from my grandfather. Been sitting at his house for a while, its a factory 9 from an old pickup. Is it worth buying the kit to adapt it to the f-body or just buy one preassembled? Or maybe just use the third member and forget the housing?

    Thanks,

    Rob

    Hey at last you have a center section to use in a prefab housing in case you can't find the retro kit.

    Best to buy a houseing and axle kit from moser $1000 then use the third member out of your old one. Make sure you get the right axle count for what is in your old third member.

    Pardon my retardedness, but what do you mean by axle count? Splines on the axles?

    You could have it shortened and have all the brackets fabricated and welded on, but it may end up costing the same as just buying a new housing. You'd need new axles as well and the splines would have to match up with your differential (i.e: 31/31, 33/33, 35/35, etc.)

    I must be sittin on a gold mine then.

    I didnt realize that ford 9's were that hard to come by, everyone here seems to want them pretty badly.

    I at one time had 14 center sections for a 9" 3.62's all the way up through 4.11's. (Ive given a few away to friends). I dont know how many Ive still got laying around. I know for a fact Ive got 2 Detroit lockers (1-4.11 and 1 and 3.83) and at least 2 limited slip (or posi track) 4.11's
