Building a strong engine is all that is needed to make a vehicle fast right? Wrong. It is not as easy as some people make it out to be, engines need a strong drivetrain behind it to throw the power to the ground.
Ever since the Ford 9 inch live axle came to the market car enthusiasts have been putting it into the street rods, drag cars, hot rods, etc. Although strength plays a huge role in the popularity of the 9 inch; the drop out carrier, availability, locking, limited slip, spool options, and many gear ratio options pushed it even farther up in quality.
Various companies all over the world have been designing parts and ways that anyone can buy to convert the 9 inch to fit into their Camaro, Charger, or GTO. There are now conversion kits to fit almost any muscle car or truck and if you can’t find one already made, there are forums online that show you exactly how to design your own.
There is no doubt that the Ford 9 Inch is the best rear end to ever been made. Ford knew what they were doing when designing this so that people could easily work on whatever they needed and making the options easy to interchange.
