What specs can you give me on your 9"? If I was trying to build something similar what would I need to do to run 35 spline shafts? Simply a 35 spline carrier?

i think the 35 spline carriers use bigger bearings.

Anyone regear a 9" on their own? I mean if the 3rd member carries the gears, then I could regear it on my work bench, right?

I feel like such a novice right now lol I am getting myself in over my head. I like it.

Whatever you do, don't get a 35 spline ARB...

Is the 9" ARB going to be right soon? - Pirate4x4.Com Bulletin Board





This isn't as big of a deal, from the sounds of it but I don't know how hard you are on your Jeep.

They do, something like 3.062" bearings or something...would that require a new 3rd member housing?

I have read every single link posted in this thread and all I have learned is:

1. a Currie Hi Pinion is pretty much as good as my super35
2. an LP 9" is plenty strong even with 31 spline stock axles (35" tire)
3. I need 35 spline axles to run 37s+

You are such a killjoy...I am all set-up to run an ARB (compressor, air lines, switches)

I'm not opposed to running a detroit... I'd prefer an ARB since I don't compete, dig, or use cutting brakes, I think I will be ok.

Large end bearing tube housing.
I have the Currie HP 9", 35 spline shafts, ARB and have been running it for 5 years on 35" tires without any problems.
I did the research and this is what fit my needs...

Ok knuckel, so would I indeed need a new housing?

I'm going to look at and possibly pick this thing up tomorrow. So with that said, I will know more about this axle then...if it is indeed a 31 spline shaft, what size bearing does that mean it uses?

Of all the info give in this thread, and all of the links posted...not one gives much info about how to actually build this thing and the PBB search function kind of sucks.

Ive been thru this debate before and for the time and effort u can get a spider 9 housing for what $400 and itll be much stronger or by the time u purchase brake parts and everything else u might as well by a currie Rock Jock rear hp60 and be done.

I don't want a d60.

I've done enough to keep my pig as light as possible, tossing in the heaviest axle possible in order to run 35s and eventually move to 37s is kind of pointless.

I can get this axle for $75

I really think I'm going to use this as an opportunity to learn how to set up gears.

I can get a bracket kit for $225.

I'll really be into it for the cost of an ARB...that's really about it. Factor in selling my super35 and I'm pretty much into a ford 9" for about $5-600.

Ok, my brain is getting fried...here are my pre-bedtime questions.

Will the stock 3rd member work with 35 spline shafts? Or do I need something like a currie/moser/strange 3rd? (I think I know the answer, but I've read so much stuff I'm going into overload)

What would be the largest tire you would run on the 31 spline axles? (I may just regear it to 4.11 and run it stock until I can offload the super35 and d30 and buy a big bearing 3rd member and 35 spline ARB and shafts)
