78 bronco, 460, C6, 9" rear end, 36" tsl/ground hawgs.

Question 1: P.O. put a mini spool in the back but I want to drive this thing on the road, is it going to grenade my rear end or is it safe to drive on the roads for a while?

Question 2: How do I remove the mini spool, I've never done axle work before.

iv driven mine on the street either with minispool or welded for the past 10 years. 35-38.5 and 16" wide. did just fine. but if you do drive it daily remember to BE CAREFUL untill you get used to the unusual handeling. and dont let someone else drive it.

you would need spider gears to re-install once you took the mini spool out, its a pain to drive on the street and expect to eat tires.

Ok thanks guys. I don't have the spider gears for it, I guess I'll wait till I regear to take it out. Tires are already garbage so I'm not worried, I don't plan on driving it that far on the street.

I'd just find another 3rd member if you're not familar with gear's. It only takes about 2 hours to drop a 3rd and swap it the first time. 3.55 open 3rds are a dime a dozen.
