Re: 8.8 to 9 inch swap 86 F150

Well got the axles out. They are 31 spline. Had a question about the pinion size though. Does anyone know what the stock pinion size is on a 86 f150 4.9L longbed (ex.1100, 1300 ect.)? Curious if anyone knows if buying a complete 9" 3rd member is cheaper than rebuilding one?
