I have an 85 Bronco with a 9", and found a guy who has a couple of spare axles from a 79 model cheap. Will these axles swap from one housing to the other? Same length? Bearing diameter? I know the spline count is the same.

Thanks,
Danny

The axles should work fine as for the bearings you may have to replace them if their not the correct ones. If the seals are bad on the axle the bearing will have to be replace anyway!

Maybe.......
The late build used the same 2 inch flange patteren as the 80+'s
But the switch from taper to sealed bearings was around that time as well.
You would woulnd need to see if he has 3/8 or 1/2 bolts on his flange. If they are the same as yours you should be golden

I have had mine apart, and they are tapered bearings. Mine must be 3/8 bolts on the flanges.

thanks guys,
Danny
