Ford 1 ton axles have been used on a variety of vehicles through many generations. Like all automotive components, they eventually wear out and require a rebuild or replacement. Rebuilds use many of the original components and just require replacement of the consumable parts. As a result, a rebuild can be a much cheaper option than a replacement. Another option is a rebuilt replacement axle where you can purchase an off-the-shelf rebuilt axle.

What Makes an Axle a 1-Ton?
Many people mistakenly think a 1-ton axle is based on the internal components of the differential. Although the internal gearing and components relate more to towing capacity, an axle is a 1 ton based more on it load rating i.e. its capacity to endure weight. This affects how load is distributed through the axle housing and its resistance to bending. This is why 1 ton axles are used in heavy duty vehicles.
