This 8" housing from Currie features a standard 8" center housing stamping that has been custom machined to accept larger 3" x .188" wall d.o.m. tubes and new billet small bearing style housing ends. Housing comes complete with 3rd. member studs installed, MIG welded to customer specs. 3" tube 8" housings make installing most aftermarket suspension bracketry easy, as most of the bracketry is all designed to fit a 3" tube. Other advantages include the ability to use large bearing axles and all of the larger brake kits that are only available for large bearing housing ends.
