If it is low pinion the knuckles must be on upside down.

Oil isn't the issue if it is flipped upside down

Straight or reverse cut gears make no difference. You can't flip a low pinion axle over and have the axle spin the correct way. The axle will go backwards.

I don't think you understand, it doeant matter if it is for off-road use. If you put that in and put the vehicle in drive it will go backwards. The only way it will work is if you have a rear engine buggy.

When you put a low pinion rear axle in the front it has to stay low pinion. Just like the high pinion 60 I built for the rear of my last project. If you buy an aftermarket high pinion center for a 9" it will work and if you leave it as a low pinion for the front it will work. If you have a t case of some sort that will change the direction the front driveshaft spins you could flip the housing and make a rear low pinion a high pinion. If memory serves hillbilly stomp has a fabricated 9" housing, Dana 44 knuckles and a low pinion center section.

Go put your truck on jackstands and put it in drive and pay attention to the direction the front driveshaft is spinning. Now spin the pinion on that axle the same direction and post back with the direction the tires are going.
