i thought jeffys rear was an open ( im talking about the 8.5 guys )
could be the brake pad popped of and grabbed the drum

ive broken the stock posi spider gears and that was a little clunky

you wont know till you open her up
Haven't baught Jeff's yet with all the holiday bs any yes his an 8.5 open the one in the car is a 7.5 eaton posi could have been the brake shoe and no this wasn't just clunky it felt like the drive shaft was getting ready to be ripped off but going home it didn't do chit almos like the pin was getting ready to come out. Hell Dave time to get the right one under her now if i can con a good Doc into selling me a posi and putting the whole thing together :)

I have a 8.5 3.42 rear but with no posi. Its sitting in my driveway I was going to put it on the old GN. Im swapping the new Buick with the Posi on my old one. I just cracked it open last week its in really good shape but no Posi.
