Rear will be fine but the fron will be a different story.

Yeah I've killed an 8.8 in my 90 bronco so I took the 9" out of my 80' bronco and it bolted right in never had a problem again till I blew up my T-case

9" is good, but i went 8.8 because the pinion sits higher. the 8.8 is very strong in stock forum though, phil how the hell did you blow one up?

the 9 inch pinion sits lower and as a result there are more pinion teeth engages with the ring a any given time so even with deep ratios you still have plenty of mesh....the pinion has an end support bearing to prevent deflection and disks are available from the older lincolns............pretty stout set up!

can you explain this a little more, im interested to hear, thats like saying a lp will be stronger than a hp, i cant see how where the pinion sits would make any difference of how many teeth are engaged at any given time, the only thing i could see that would affect this is the angle that the pinion sits, but if you have any info on this im all ears(not trying to start a flame war, i just honestly dont understand this and would like to hear more if it is ture) not arguing that the 9" is an awesome rear end, look at all the hotrodder guys, there all 9"s

well
im not an engineer but
the pinion sits lower and if you have ever checked out the mesh of say dana 44 gears out of the diff you will see there are (X) number of teeth rngaged at any given time
the 9 inch pinion sits lower on the ring and the teeyh on the pinion look closer to a worm than a standard hypoid automotive gear set....check it out for yourself and read some tech info on this setup.........trust me it does
what does happen though with rough use on a stock case is the pinion snub suppot bearing housing can develope a crack.
yes a high pinion is stronger in the front axle for different reasons!

yeah no doubt...i agree.......the loose nut behind the wheel is usually the determining factor............
but according to big urn toy axles are indestructable! :)
