View Full Version : need IFS 4.56 front axle.

Looking to see whats out there before I start hitting the salvage yards. It's easier to pick one up than it is to pull one. And I'd rather give my money to a fellow 'mudder anyway.

Are you looking for locked? What is your budget? I'm swapping to a 4.88 set and will be pulling my locked (Aussie) 4.56s out.

My gearing issue has been resolved. thanks.

I did a solid axle swap on a rig and he gave me his front diff, which I installed in my daily driver/ parts runner mistakenly thinking it was a 4.56 front -- It turned out to be a 4.88. I ended up ordering a 4.56 gearset and installing it in the rear before I knew all this. took the truck for a drive, and the transfer case wouldn't engage. Surprise! I went to the junkyard and pulled a 4.56 front before we talked again, at which point he told me that since the 4.88 "bastard" housing was really no good to anyone but me, I could have it too. Now I had a full 4.56 set and a full 4.88 set. Since I plan on running 33's in the future I went 4.88 and now have a 4.56 set for sale... :rolleyes:
