Does anyone make a kit to turn my 89 9&1/4 axle into a full floater? I've seen them advertised for rear D44's and some others but never for the 9&1/4, does it exist? Can it be made?

Thanks

but with that much money, you could buy and install a real full floater axle, and probably a locker and new gears.

Roger that Duane. I was trying to steer clear of that, not to mention I got a free limited slip for my stock rear and just bought a set of 5 lug wheels for it. Just wanted that full floater security. Maybe in a few years some company will realize that they've been overlooking our 80's model dodges???

well, i know that if a full floater kit comes out, it would have to be pretty cheap, as in cheaper than a dana 60 or 14 bolt and the cost to put it in, before i would buy it.

afterthought: a c-clip eliminator would be nice though.

yes, that would at least make axle changes twice as fast, without losing the fluid

Unless you are constantly breaking axles, there really isn't a need to convert to a full floater. Leave your axle alone, it's pretty stout enough for most applications.

If you are breaking axles or expect to go beyond the capabilies of your 9.25, you're better off swapping for a Full Floater Dana 60 and eat the cost for rims and your limited slip. The Dana 60 can be found for dirt cheap, and you can get a locker for a low price. As for rims, yes it'd be expensive, but 8 lugs is better for holding larger tires on than any light five lug.

yup c clip elimintaor is available. some welding required i do believe. only to axle tubes tho.

they chop the 9.25 ends off and weld on 8.75 or ferd 9" ends and use those bearings.

i believe pulling an axle becomes as easy as 4 bolts. but im not sure. i do know unless all 4 bolts break your axle/wheel will stay intact.
