Can we see the whole axle?

I think it's Dodge. Look here and compare...

Thanks for this! I ended up actually sending in pictures to that site and they were able to identify my axle as a 48-52 ford axle. now to determine what to do!

That's the same axle I used in my Graham build. If you sift through the thread you can get an idea of how I did it, and if you have any questions I'd be glad to try and answer.

I guess you already know it is from a pickup, not a passenger car, right ? Nothing wrong with that, they are just different in the way the spring(s) mount.
