Im guessing its a 9 in buty idk could be different I guess. First does the 9 inch have that 4x4 hub lockout knob looking thing at the end of the axle shaft? Some stuff wrote on it are Ford Splicer and the numbers 3094 and 1-585 idk if the 1 is a 1 or l. Inside the carrier are the numbers 0257 on both sides. Also when I turn the axle shaft that has the tire off it turns the driveshaft but not the other tire. But when I turn the side with the tire on it turns the driveshaft and the axleshaft on the opposite side the same way I turn the side with the tire on it. This is in a 78 ford bronco.. Thanks for any help you guys can give me!

uh okay well can someone move it for me then?

Otherwise.. no one knows what the numbers mean? It'd be nice to find out before tomorrow... and with counting the teeth on the gears.. how many teeth are on stock gears... what about 4.10 or 4.56s...

For a 78 Bronco, the REAR axle should be a 9 inch. There is no locking hubs on a 9 inch though, because its used in a rear axle configuration only (except for some aftermarket axles being built, but thats a different story)
You have an open differential, thats why the tires don't turn in the same direction when you turn them

I know it doesnt have lockin hubs I was just saying it had like the knob shaped thing on the end of the axle shafts molded into them. Both spin the same direction when I spin the side with the tire on it..

You got a camera? That might help get your questions answered.

yes the cover is pulled off of it right now so I could take a look at the gears. Thats why I was confused cause my 77 f-150 doesnt have a removable cover. It is 5 lug though

Is this the shape you're talking about?



It's not a knob, it's just the way it's cast.

I was thinking that but also thinking why would someone do that then put a lift with 36 inch tires that are 14 inches wide..

weird? Is that worth really anything? Cause I don't really need it.. Unless its stronger then the 9 inch then maybe swap it in the 77? I have no clue what gears it has.. Do the gears look stock?
