1964 Mustang Rear Axle
A 1964 Mustang rear axle is a complicated component. Since the rear wheels of a Mustang have to deal with power that’s transferred from the engine to propel the car, the tires need to be in contact with the road surface at all times. The rear suspension helps maintain friction with the road surface, but it’s the axle that has to deal with the weight of the car and the torsional forces exerted by the engine and drivetrain. The rear axle also houses the rear differential, which is extremely important in a rear-wheel drive car like the Mustang. If your 1964 Mustang has been in the garage for years, give it a thorough inspection before setting out on the road. CJ Pony Parts will help you out with replacement parts for your 1964 Mustang rear axle.

1964.5 Rear Axle
Keep Your ‘Stang RunningA broken rear axle will render a Mustang useless. The rear axle also houses two half shafts on either side of the differential that transfer the power to each of the wheel hubs. The differential uses a set of gears to angle the rotational motion of the propeller shaft perpendicular to the wheel hubs. It also allows each wheel on the rear axle to spin at different speeds while cornering. The gears in a differential are bathed in lubricant at all times. Check your Mustang’s differential for viscosity on a regular basis.
Classic cars, like the 1964 Mustang, will require overhauling after hitting a certain number of miles. Below are the reasons why you need to worry about your old Mustang rear axles:
• Major drivetrain component. A 1964 Mustang rear axle is a major component that forms the drivetrain. Without a proper, working rear axle, your Mustang won’t move.
• A complicated part. The rear axle of a Mustang consists of various gears and shafts that work in unison to propel the car. It also bears the weight of the car.
• Lubrication. All the internal components of a rear axle are bathed in lubricant. A certain oil level and viscosity has to be maintained to reduce friction build up between the gears. Friction will cause the gears to wear out faster.
