THIS IS THE AXLE BEING SOLD ON EBAY, SPEEDWAY AND EVERYWHERE ELSE. It is lighter made, and carries the manufacture guarantee only, not ours. I do not recommend this one for Panel trucks or Loaded Big Blocks.  Many have been used successfully, but we had trouble with a few on Camber issues (which we have been assured are now fixed). So now have a new and Improved version. see 2890. For a truck that is going to be lightly driven I am sure it would be fine and many are out there, just want you to be aware of the considerable difference in quality and strength. 

**Scrub Line, this is the point your axle will SCRUB the pavement. When buying a dropped axle please make sure you have safe scrub line clearance with the amount of drop you choose . To figure scrub line clearance with axle in truck. 1. Measure bottom of axle to ground with the wheels and tires you are going to run. 2. Measure bottom of wheel to ground. Subtract #2 from #1 say axle is 12" off ground, bottom of wheel is 4" off the ground, you have 8" scrub line this is your current scrub line. Now Subtract amount of axle drop you want from Old Scrub line, you are getting a 3" drop axle, take 3" off, 5" is your scrub line. New Scrub Line would be 5" You want to end up with clearance you do not want to "scrub" the pavement and turn your truck into a front loader.
