DSS 9" / Stock rear DOA

Well I did it ! Killed the stock rear end today. lol.
It now says clunk clunk clunk ...
I'll tell you that the stock rear end held up great for the way I drive and well over 600 rwhp

So time to install the DSS 9" kit.
Any tips on the install ? I thought i read some where that you have to do some grinding for clearance for the housing . But can't find where i read it at.

At least i can be safe now under extreme power driving !

Its a direct bolt in affair, if you use the Strange "s" case or the Spraker standard case it will bolt right in with out any modifications.

I had the DSS 9 inch installed with the strange "heavy duty" case took a little cutting but nothing drastic. Which ever center you install, remember to break it in or you will have whine.
