Rear Axle

Out back, power flows from the (stock? yep) Borg-Warner 13-45 transfer case to a Dana 70 rearend, spinning 5.86:1 gears. Iowa being next door to the Land of Lincoln, it should come as no surprise that the 70 runs welded spiders instead of a locker, though the presence of USA Alloy shafts and 1410 Yukon joints should help to prolong the lifespan of the axle's innards. Chevy calipers and Ford rotors pull stoppage duties, and a single long-stroke Pro Comp shock at each corner provides damping for the coil/'bone rear suspension.
