1990 454SS Rear Axles
10/09/08 at 20:53:39
 
Hello all,

I am a new club member, and I am new to this forum format so please bare with me.
I am looking for a set of rear axles for the 14 bolt cover, 33 spline, 9.5" ring gear, semi floater rear end that is in my 1990 454SS. I am running a 502 ci. fuel injected motor at 625 hp. and 600+ ft. lbs. of torque, and a Gear Venders electronic gear splitter/ overdrive. GM has discontinued there axle / axles over 8 years ago now. I have tried the GM national parts locator network, and several other national and north american parts locator networks, along with national used parts locators.I have talked to the folks at Strange Engineering and they stated that they do not have the tooling to produce the 45 degree pitch angle truck axles at this time. At this point I have had NO luck locating any axles. I am hoping that someone will have some insight for me , or can give me some direction with any possibilities.
Thanks, StevieMac

Welcome to the forum, as for the axles pm ckelly on here he had to have one made recently I believe. I'm sure he will chime in if he sees this... May be a good time to go with Dana 60 or 9 inch. I have 2 spare rears but am not interested in getting rid of them at this time.
Good luck with your search.

Bill

Ya, ckelly had some made in Indiana somewhere, but it wasn't Mosier?

I talked to him at the shootout, but he didn't remember there name for sure.  I hope he chimes in at some point and gives us the info.

I joined the club after I broke one back in 2002.  I ended up having Mosier axle shorten and redrill a 6 lug light duty 3/4 ton truck axle.  It is still working fine.  If you choose to go this route, make sure they size the 5 bolt pattern for our studs and not the 3/4 ton studs....

Superior make the axles, but I believe in only the 4x4 length with 6 or 8 lugs.

Must have gotten hacked when the new forum came in.  Wonder if any of the old forum links like that work? Huh

all of the old links from the old forum should work, but if you compare the 2 you will see the difference.
