For a custom or specialized rearend order
please try and initially determine these three
dimensions on your vehicle before calling
a Currie Enterprises sales representative:
1. The Overall Width (Dimension A above):
The overall width can best be determined by
putting the tires under the car (make sure
to allow a minimum of one inch clearance for
the fender and the frame rails) and measure
the distance between the wheel mounting surface
on each wheel.
2. The Pinion Location: The pinion location
in most cases will be centered; in some cases
the housing is off center (a .94" pinion offset
is typical, as in the diagram seen above).
This allows clearance for brackets on very
narrow rearends, so as to provide a platform
for mounting upper control arm brackets for
triangulated 4 link suspension.
3. The Wheel Lug Bolt Pattern: The lug bolt
pattern is the number of studs (usually
5) and the diameter of the circle on which
they are placed. The diameter is determined
by measuring from the center of the axle
to the center of one stud and doubling the
measurement. See dimension BC in the Axle
Dimensions Diagram directly below.
