    Thumbs up

    I understand id love to be able get a new rear end.. but im on a shoe string budget and have to get it rolling asap,,, so i got a torsen posi from a 02 ss.. with low miles and 3.42 gears... for 140 off ebay,,, bearing kit from ebay 53 bucks (koyo)... so i did put about 190 in it,,, but whole new rear ends with gears i wanted were hard to find here in my part of Texas,,, so did the tear down tonight and will be putting it together tommorow... the loud noise i heard when it started was the retainer bolt for the middle pin of the posi coming out and getting lodged in the pinion bearing! I was going to post a pic of the pinion bearing all chewed up but i guess the file was to big,,, thanks for the help ,,, hope to be rolling again in a few days,,,

    have you ever set up a rear end? if not I highly recommend you either take it to someone or follow writeups to the t and make youre you have all the correct tools the measure backlash and gear wear patterns. if you do not set it up correctly you risk destroying the new gears

    I'd get that wheel hop taken care of as soon as you can otherwise you're going to be replacing another rear end again.
