Currie has a long history as a supplier of differentials and rear axle hardware for dozens of models, large and small. Founded in 1959, Currie began designing and building differentials and rear ends for personnel carriers, electric carts, tugs and scissor lifts, along with other specialty vehicles. While the Currie business began in the owner's garage, by 1964, the company moved to a 5,000 square foot facility in Placentia, California. In the 1970s, Currie began developing aftermarket rear ends for Jeeps, getting their first foothold in the consumer market.
By the late 1970s, Currie began building performance rear ends for V8 conversions in many popular models including the Chevy Vega, Chevy Luv, Ford Courier and Toyota Hi-Lux models. In the early 1980s, Currie started to become familiar with Ford, producing a 9-inch rear end for kit cars and street rods, which was based on a Ford design. This design grew the popularity of Currie and forced them to expand, first to a 7,000 square foot facility, then an 11,000 square foot state-of-the-art plant in 1984. Soon after, in 1986, Currie began to rapidly expand its product lines to take advantage of the additional space and market demand.
Today, Currie occupies a 40,000 square foot building in Corona, California
, which is near Los Angeles
. The Currie product line continues to expand and the company boasts 50 employees and a state-of-the-art facility. Each of their products is designed, tested, sold and installed right from their facility and Currie itself has grown into one of the most recognized names in rear ends and rear end components. CJ Pony Parts offers several of their products that are designed for classic Mustangs and Jeep Wranglers, allowing those owners to order a quality upgrade and get the reliable performance of a Currie rear end in their Mustangs or Wranglers.
