Creative Use for '89 F350 1Ton Full Floating Axle
I've been trying to upgrade the towing and load carrying capacity on my 68 El Camino (please don't stop reading, this is about Ford). At the same time I want to improve it's handling. So first I was thinking about a Ford nine inch diff with limited slip (to improve handling) and then I learned about the load carrying benefits of full floating axles on my one ton F350. The F350 won't be part of the fleet much longer, hence the reason to upgrade the El Camino to the extent possibile. So then I started wondering about putting a limited slip inside an F350 diff and making it fit under the ElCamino. Then... I'd have an axle that wouldn't suffer if I carried something heavy on Monday and an El Camino that might corner a smidgen better on Tuesday.
Before you say I've got way too much time on my hands if I can dream about weird combinations like this; don't bother...my wife has got this area covered.
So, can I put a limited slip in this diff?...and oh by the way, how much do you think it weighs compared to the nine inch? Thanks for your time. Dave
