Let’s start things out with the housing ends. The Currie Enterprises 9-Plus late-model (Torino-styled) large bearing ends are pictured at the left. Center is the Speedway Engineering floater hub spindle—similar to what you would find on a NASCAR vehicle or in some heavy-duty pickup trucks. Pictured on the right are the early-model Ford large bearing housing ends. The machined Currie axle ends will accept the larger tapered bearings. Both Currie and the Speedway ends are CNC machined. The Currie ends will accept stock disc/drum brakes along with larger kits like Wilwood in the main photo. The Speedway spindle is nothing new to the market, but Wilwood recently adapted the use of a parking brake to the Speedway floater hub. This makes for a unique setup that I think will be seen on show vehicles and Pro Touring builds alike.
