Currie 9-inch Housing and Axle Packages for 1959 thru 1964 Impala, Biscayne, Bel Air, El Camino, Brookwood, Kingswood, Nomad, and Sedan Delivery, B-body vehicles with 3-link suspension, are built to match the vehicles stock axle width, pinion offset, suspension mounting locations and wheel bolt pattern - for a straightforward hassle-free installation
Housing and Axle Packages require a 9-inch third-member assembly and compatible brake package to complete the rear end. Requires assembly of components before installation
Narrowed option to accommodate vehicles running wheel skirts and reverse offset smaller diameter wheels, like those used typically on Lowriders
Included Standard Features
Axle Bearings - Axle bearings are shipped loose, not pressed onto the axles, to enable brake components to be installed
Lubrication Requirements - 9-inch rear ends use a high-offset hypoid gear design requiring severe 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.
4-Link Suspension - If you have a B-body with 4-link suspension, give us a call, and we'll build a rear-end with the required brackets
Aftermarket Brakes - Currie crate rear-end 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 crate 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
Narrowed Option - Currie offers a narrowed option that is 3 inches overall narrower than stock width to accommodate vehicles running wheel well skirts, with installed smaller diameter reverse mount wheels typically found on Lowriders and Lowrods
