Crate Rearend Standard Features:

Centurion Center Section   Currie Centurion Housing - Classic notchback looks in a new, high-strength, American made housing, that features 3-inch diameter axle tubes, and CNC machined face flange, for a flat leak free seal - all joined together with strong attractive welds
     
Sportsman Third Member   Currie Sportsman Case - New nodular iron gear case with Daytona big bearing pinion support and 1330 yoke is the perfect foundation for a performance restomod build - no used or reconditioned parts here!
     
Timken Master Bearing Kit   Master bearing Kit - High quality Timken bearings and performance seals are used throughout to provide a long trouble free service life
     
Spring Pads   Spring Pads - Heavy duty 1/4-inch thick spring pad mounts are installed in the OEM locations for bolt-in compatibility with the stock leaf spring suspension
     
Billet Housing End   Billet Housing Ends - Currie billet late model Ford Torino large bearing housing ends are CNC machined for accuracy and feature provisions for internal or external axle oil seals
     
Currie Performance Axles   Alloy Axles - Currie Performance 31-spline 1541 alloy axles are drilled to match the OE bolt pattern and stud size - with Timken tapered axle bearings installed
     
Heavy Duty bearing Retainer   Bearing Retainers - Includes the correct bearing retainer plates for the Brake Package option selected
     
In-house Skilled Assembly   Professional Assembly - Every crate rearend is fully assembled in-house by our skilled professionals and shipped ready to install

 

Crate Rearend Options:

Ring and Pinion Options   Gear Ratio - Currie uses only the highest quality Motive Gear Performance® series (Orange box) ring and pinion sets in our 9-inch crate rearends
     
Differential Options   Differential - Select the differential type that meets your traction needs, including: standard open, helical gear or clutch style limited slip, automatic or selectable locking differential or steel spool

Ring Gear Polish   Isotropic Polishing - Removes surface imperfections created during the gear manufacturing process. Polishing decreases friction, reduces operating temps and removes stress risers. This option helps gears last longer and run quieter
     
Optional Fill Cap   Fill Cap - Make those oil changes easy with the optional high mounted aluminum fill cap
     
Optional Drain Plug   Drain Plug - This simple option makes changing the oil so much easier - no more removing the brakes, axles and third member for a simple oil change
     
Powder Coat   Powder Coat - Optional powder coat finish adds long lasting protection against rust and corrosion to keep your rearend looking its best

NOTES:

Lubrication Requirements - Ford 9-inch rearends use a high-offset hypoid gear design that requires a sever duty gear oil with API GL-6 rating. Use of oil not meeting the GL-6 rating will damage the gears and bearings and void the Currie Warranty

55-57 Nomad, Sedan Delivery and Wagons - Require a rearend with a different pinion offset so that the drive shaft will clear the stock gas tank. Contact Sales for a built-to-order rearend with the correct pinion offset

Aftermarket Brakes - Currie crate rearends conform to the ABCS (Aftermarket Brake Configuration Standard). This allows brake kits that use this standard, to easily be changed or upgraded without having to modify the housing or axles. ABCS brakes use a 2.5” brake space with late-model big bearing Ford housing ends, and a 2.80 center hole in the drum or rotor

Wheel Studs - Currie crate rearends use a standardized-shank Currie Enterprises wheel studs that allow the following wheel studs to be interchangeable in the axles, without drilling:  12mm, 7/16, ½, and ½-3” competition
