    Doesn't this show you to be 1010 over on the front axle, and 305 over on the rear?


    Edit--forgot, you already have the IS on the trailer?

      I considered the 9K axles but they MORryde said everything looked good and within spec. One sad thing IMHO is the brake pads on the 8 and 9K are the same. Calipers are a bit larger on the 9K.

        This year, I traded a great truck, 2009 Ram 4500, but was only rated 26,000 GCVWR. I purchased a new 5500 which I will never exceed or come close on any of my ratings. My rig ratings are highlighted. Ron

            That's my plan... I out grew the 02 3500, then I thought the 09 4500 was the final truck, but this really is the last one.

              Well, not entirely correct.

                At the time in May of 2016 what I stated WAS TRUE. I stood right there and talked to the person assembling the axles. Also was confirmed by Rob.

                Could be they were installing the wrong pads? Are they physically the same dimensions?
