I've got the chance to buy a 31 spline traction lock with a 3.50 ratio. My old truck is 28 spline. Does anyone know what year they started putting 31 spline axles in F-100s? My Detroit Locker is going to find a home in my Stang. The 3.50 ratio would be better with the 3.75 first gear in my truck's 5-speed. The 4.11s are a little steep!

Anyone with the answer? I am going to say 1973-74. That was about when the big blocks{460} came out.

9" truck rear ends from 1957 through 1972 are the same width, I have heard that somewhere in the '67-'72 series the 31 spline axles showed up in the trucks. I took axles out of a '72 FE powered F-100 that were solid with two holes on the end that were 28 splines.

My '78 (400/auto) F-150 has longer 31 spline axles that won't fit the '72 and older housings.

Yeah, i've never run across any 72 and older 31 splines. Might have been 390 with 4 speed and highest GVW only.
