Johnny Joint Installed   Currie Johnny Joints - Installed in the upper control arm mounts reduce suspension deflection while freeing up axle articulation for smooth, predictable performance - without the noise, vibration and harness of heim joints
     
Welded tubes   Full Circumference Welds – Strong 3-inch diameter .250 wall axle tubes are full circumference welded to the housing center for improved rigidity and strength over the factory housing
     
Master Bearing Kit   Timken Bearings - High-quality Timken bearings and performance seals are used throughout to provide a long trouble free service life

NOTES:

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
