Hello, i've been told i should go with a 9" and that i can "just find one and cut it down and weld on the brackets".now that sounds simple to me but, what vehicles and years are good for donor rear ends, is there instructions how to do this swap-where to get brackets/or cut them off g-body rear, saw a couple rears for sale and were like 2500 and up, too much for me now, but could get a couple favors done if this is a doable thing and save me enough, thanks for any tips ahead of time, John.

what are your goals? a stock GN rear with some beefed up axles and carrier is fine for a 9-10 second car IMO. im running the stock rear housing with a moser full spool, axles, and c clip eliminators- im not even close to haveing this thing running but it will hold up i think :crazy:

well planning on down the line, dont know if this year will be done but think i should be in 10s, but will be building a motor to hopefully bring it down 9-8s, its a 455 motor, just to let you know, the v8buick site has great info fo that but thought i would check here for the drivetrain advive. tranny will be th400 w/ transbrake, current motor has just about 500-525 hp and plenty of tq, the next motor all out will be 800+ and may get sprayed, i want the rear to handle insane launches, if i didnt plan on doing the other motor for next year i would build a gn rear up but would hate to do that and need to upgrade a year later, how much for a built 8.5 for ten seconds track ready, c-elimes, good axles, ready to bolt on, if i could find one cheap i may put the other plans off for a year , gives me more time and money to spen on the ne block, take care all, john

Unless you're able to do all the work your self it will be cheaper to buy a complete assembled ready to bolt in rear end. Both strange and moser are building rears for g-bodys, I would look at strange engineering dana 60 units.

jlnel: I believe ajt86 was saying that he upgraded his STOCK 10 bolt rear with axles, a spool, c-clip eliminators, etc. for about $900.

Not the 9" Ford rear.

Just building a 9" yourself, putting aftrmkt parts in oem houseing, carrier, etc probably won't work. At your expectations, it's not that simple.
