Most of the original 9" housings in the early Bronco are weak "banjo" type housings. They had a round center section with minimal support for the axle tubes. In some 76's and in the 77's the housing in the Bronco was a little better with a larger, wider center section. This provided added support for the axle tubes. What we have to offer is a superior housing at an affordable price. Our super 9" housing features:
25" wide housing center, notch cut and welded for additional strength and support for the axle tubes.
3" X .250" wall D.O.M. tubes
Large bearing large bolt billet ends
Leaf spring mounts are pre-welded for you saving time and cost
Leaf spring mounts are set up for 2-5.5" lift so leaf spring shims will not be necessary
The breather hole is drilled and tapped for the original breather bolt.
1/2" T-bolts are available if you are switching from a small bearing housing or don't already have them. Third member studs are also optional. You can use your old ones from your existing housing. The housing comes in satin black.
