NOTES:

Axle Bearings - Due to the many brake options available and the associated bearing retainers required, the axle bearings are shipped loose and must be pressed on to the axles prior to final assembly

1955 - 1957 Nomad - Built to order, due to the location of the gas tank the pinion must be centered on the axle for clearance

Brake Lines - Hard brake lines are not included with Housing and Axle Packages. Currie offers kits designed to fit a broad range of brake packages

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-inch 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, 1/2, and 1/2 x 3-inch competition
