The Ford 8.8 and 9 inch rear differentials are two of the most popular and best high-performance differentials on the market. Built by Ford from 1957 to 1986, the Ford 9 inch differential has dominated the muscle car, hot rod and V8 competition car market because it is one of the strongest, most durable and most versatile rear differentials with full OEM and aftermarket support. In fact, the 9 inch axle has been installed in many Fords, such as the Mustang and Torino as well as in many non-Fords, such as the Camaro, Chevelle and others. Aftermarket companies offer a full range of parts for the 8.8 and 9 inch axles.

After high-performance use and/or many miles, the 8.8 and 9 inch axle assemblies need to be rebuilt. Author and driveline expert Joe Palazzolo guides you through each step of the rebuild process for 8.8 and 9 inch models, so you can confidently complete the work yourself. He explains in detail limited slip and open differential disassembly, inspection, assembly, final calibration and break-in. He also shows you how to identify worn ring and piston gears, rebuild clutch packs, set the correct contact pattern for pinion and ring gears as well as backlash and much more.

In addition, you find out how to identify, search for and buy a used 9 inch differential. A complete installation of a custom 9 inch into a Tri-Five Chevy is detailed from start to finish. If you've been looking for the ultimate Ford 8.8 and 9 inch axle assembly rebuild book, you've found it.
