    The axle tube actually has two diameters since it narrows slightly where the U-Bolts attach. I'm getting about 2-3/4 inch at that point...
  • Paisano replied to the thread 475,000 mile F7 rear axle.
    That might be an error on that part description. The axle tube diameter should be the same for current and rebuilt axle assemblies. When...
