    Thumbs up Got the 9" all ready to go in.

    Well I finally got the 9" all painted and the third member in. Now I just need some lift time to get her in. Thought you all might like some pics.

    Look at how fat those axles are. Big beefy bastards, I knew they were going to be beefy but when I opened the box I was impressed by the size and beauty.

    Ya, its like going from a lollipop stick to a Louisville slugger. HUGE difference.

    You'll love the piece of mind of dropping the clutch at 4000 rpm and not having to worry about anything. Hope you bought a new drive shaft to go with your new rear end. If not, Strange has a really nice Chromoly one with 1350 yokes and u-joints good for 1000 HP for $295 shipped. Cheap insurance.

    Unfortunatley I can't drive, standards, I'm stuck with Automatics but having a pretty much bulletproof rearend gives me piece of mind. All of my muscle cars I've modded over the years I worked backward and ended up blowing up trannies, valve springs, rear ends, pistons and so on because I used to just want more power, power, power, now that I'm a bit older and understand that you need a solid foundation to build on, I think this car will be a winner.

    Haven't bought a driveshaft yet but that is next on the list. I just spent all my fun money on getting some 243's ported and polished. I'm waiting to get the flow specs back before I order a cam, but before I install the heads, cam and some other preventative maintenance items, I'm putting in a new driveshaft. Sounds like a good deal from Strange though and I like their products

    Mine was $2280 shipped but I upgraded to the Strange Nodular Iron S-Case, detroit locker and 35 spline Mosers, so it was a bit more expensive than their basic 500hp setup ($1950).

    I have always done my drive train first then did everything else. Unfortunately, My weakest link of my whole car right now is my stock 6 speed. But with only 410 rwhp at the moment, I think I will be fine for now until I add a Pro charger later down the road.

    Hey Jay... not to thread jack, but.......

    Did you have any issues with exhaust/driveshaft clearance? Also, torque arm... requires a little hammering of the floor board does it?

    Yes!! you need to use an air hammer and "Massage" the floorboard a little where the torque arm mount mounts. If you don't, you will get vibration and clunking sounds. as far as the exhaust and drive line, no issues with my set up. I have a Borla Adjustable.
