    go with a 12 or 9". if your tracking it you are going to keep breaking it!
    try a Moser 12 bolt. i think its a direct bolt on.

    Rebuilding the rear starts to get old after the 3rd, 4th time...I upgraded to a 4600 stall, didn't get one launch. Then to find out it took the tranny with it...
    12 BOLT !!! Make it Bullit Proof now, & save alot of headaches down the road !!! Good Luck !!!

    Go with a 12 bolt or a 9" like jbb681 said. Strange makes a direct bolt in. I have one and it went in very nice.

    +1 vote for a Strange 12-bolt. Install was a snap, and the Strange had mounts for the sway bar (I've heard that the Moser doesn't).
