I have a 55 2nd gen truck and the rear axle is so low geared that the engine (350 V8 with a 3 speed ) is reving its tits off at 55 - 60 mph as its something daft like 4.70 -1 so im after a rear axle for it and whilst i have looked online all the info out there is american and obviously our scrap yards are not full of ford 9 in axles or old corvettes so anybody know of an axle thats good for the job that is easyer to get hold of or am i going to have to look out for a yank one
cheers Dunk
