I hear ya' but if you could that would be great. I may do the same next year but not hands on so would be cool for me to see it side by side.
You got all the best gear man, kudos to you.

Didn't get much done last night in favor of gettin up early this morning and gettin started. 3rd member is set up and installed in the housing with axle stubs. Been a few years since I set up a ring and pinion so I took my sweet ass time.

Takin a break for a bit, then start tear down of the car. Hopefully get it all apart tonite and reassemble tomorrow morning with the goods.

If I buy your wheels next month I will be off my plan lol.

4.30's for now. Once I settle on a motor combo I may end up changin to something different. Good thing about a 9" is a set of gears is less than 200 bones =)

No they can be cut out; its just a pain to do. It was the longest part of the process and rough on the hands with the reciprocating saw.

At least they were on the ground and not over your head. My arms were jelly at the end of the day. Glad you finally got them.

I approve. Hoping I can keep the stock rear alive with the auto vs the manual for weight and efficiency reasons. Time will tell

Yeah the 9" is probably 40 pounds heavier than the stock diff =/
At least its over the rear axle centerline tho and not up front!

Only problem with the stock diff is (Currently) no good diff availible and gears are expensive as hell. Not to mention its easier to set up gears in a 9".

With the auto you will probly be ok with some good axles/DS as long as no Transbrake is involved
