Ford 9in rear issues

I just picked up a Ford Granada 9in rear (with drums). This will be going in my `85 CJ-7. My issues with this is the axle bolt pattern. Anyone know of a junk yard / parts store way to make these a 5 on 5.5? I will be going through this and adding a locker, 4:56 gears and 31 spline axles.

I have a ford 9" in mine and had to have custom axles made but I narrowed the rear to have the same track width as the front. Do you plan to narrow your axle? If not you could have the axle flanges redrilled to 5x5.5 but I personally think you would be better off to get a set of truck axles and have them cut down to fit the car housing.

I have a early bronco (77) WMS-WMS 58". They are 5x5.5 and get the axles at from any bronco shop or Currie. I have 35 spline with exploer disc. You could get it cut down to a Bronco width have the large bearing ends welded on and then go stock Bronco axles. Add 1.25-1.5 in wheel spacer on the front and have them both ~58". This works nice for 33-35's.

I see your in Southern Cal. BC bronco (I believe therer in SoCal) has a ford 9 with CJ disc rear setup, same disc all the why around NICE!

D&R driveline in Grand Rapids, Michigan can also make whatever you need. (616-667-1308) I've had many things built there. Quality workmanship.

CJRay.

The spring pirches I used were from M.O.R.E. (Mountain Off Road) and had three mounting holes (center, 1" forward and back) by moving the axle 1" forward on a cj8 let the tire tuck much better into the wheel well it may also help on a CJ7.
