The axle tubes have been offset above the housing centerline, so the
inner axles ride near the bottom of the axle tubes rather than in the
center. The result is an increase of 3/8" in ground clearance under the
axle tubes. The axle tubes are made from 5/16" thick 1020 DOM tubing
with an outer diameter of 3".
The heavy-duty, press formed, 1/4" plate steel center section is shaved
to give you 3/4" of additional ground clearance under the differential.
The differential mounting surface is made from 1/2" plate steel to
ensure studs can not pull out, even under heavy loads. Our housings are
precision alignment checked using start-of-the-art, 3D digital imaging
equipment to ensure that all Rock Assault™ Axle Housings are 100%
straight and true.
The Rock Assault™ Front Axle Housing will come in your choice of bare
tubes, with spring perches installed, or 3-link ready with a panhard
bracket included. For an additional charge we can install an inspection
cap making inspecting your front ring and pinion a breeze. Axle housing
is shipped unpainted and lightly oiled to prevent rust during shipping
Comes with both 30 spline chromoly short and long side axle shafts.
