Currie 9-inch rear ends for 1955 thru 1959 Chevy 3100 pickups are complete, ready-to-bolt-in assemblies with a choice of gear case, axle spline, differential type, gear ratio, and brake option, making it easy to customize the package to meet almost any need

Rear ends are built to match the vehicle's stock axle width, pinion offset (drive shaft location), suspension mounting locations, and wheel bolt pattern for a straightforward, hassle-free installation

 

Included 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
     
  Drain Plug - This standard feature makes routine maintenance much easier - no more removing the brakes, axles, and the third member for a simple oil change.
     
Sportsman Third Member   Currie Sportsman Case - New nodular iron gear case with Daytona big bearing pinion support and 1350 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 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 with tapered axle bearings feature vehicle correct bolt pattern and wheel studs
     
  Bearing Retainers - Heavy-duty retainers assure positive bearing retention and full seal engagement for a long, trouble-free, leak-free service life. *Aftermarket brake kits typically utilize proprietary bearing retainers
     
In-house Skilled Assembly   Professional Assembly - Every rear end is fully assembled in-house by our skilled professionals and shipped ready to install

 

 

Options To Complete The Build

  Gear Cases - Select from a range of gear cases in nodular iron or aluminum to match the performance and weight requirements of your build
     
Ring and Pinion Set   Gear Ratio - Select from a wide variety of ratios, Currie uses only the highest quality Motive Gear Performance® series (Orange box) ring and pinion sets in our 9-inch rear-ends
     
Differential Options   Differential - Select the differential type that meets your traction needs, including helical gear or clutch-style limited-slip, automatic locking differential, or steel spool
     
Brake Options   Brake Package - Select from a range of brake options from classic 11-inch drums to 14-inch Baer and Wilwood disk brakes that are capable of meeting any performance requirement
     
Isotropic Gear Polishing   REM® Isotropic Polishing - Removes surface imperfections created during the gear manufacturing process. Polishing eliminates the need for a break-in period, decreases friction, reduces operating temps, and removes stress risers. This option helps gears last longer and run quieter
     
Powder Coat   Powder Coat - Optional powder coat finish adds long-lasting protection against rust and corrosion to keep your rear-end looking its best

 

 

NOTES:

Lubrication Requirements - Ford 9-inch rear ends use a high-offset hypoid gear design requiring severe duty gear oil with API GL-6 rating. Oil not meeting the GL-6 rating will damage the gears and bearings and void the Currie Warranty

Aftermarket Brakes - Currie rear ends conform to the ABCS (Aftermarket Brake Configuration Standard). This allows brake kits that use this standard to easily be changed or upgraded without modifying 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 rear ends use 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
