Gene’s is proud to be a distributor of Okie Joe Axles, a product of American Axles LLC. For a traditional car you can’t beat an original Ford axle dropped the old school way by Okie Joe.
We can provide you with a dropped axle from our inventory or we can have your axle dropped. Retail price to drop an axle is $200. Core charge for Model A is $50.00 and for 33-36 axles is $75. Core charge for a 32 Heavy is at current market value (when available). All axles are straightened if necessary, kingpin bores are resized if needed, and all axles are Magnafluxed before shipping. We also can fill the ends of the axle for $100 and drill the center for $100. We drill the 32's with 1" holes on 1 1/2" centers and the Model A's and 33-36's can be drilled with 7/8" holes on 1 3/8" centers. All holes are drilled with a vertical end mill using drill jigs to keep hole alignment and spacing exact.
You have a choice of stretch drop or conventional drop. The difference is stretch drop maintains the original width within 1/8 of an inch, while a conventional drop shortens the axle approximately 3/4 of an inch per side. We can also drop 37-41 Ford axles, if needed. We stock both Model A and 33-36 axles in 4 and 5 inch conventional drops.
