    Dont throw any money at fixing that POS 10-bolt. Get a Moser or Strange 12 bolt or 9 inch and you wont ever have to worry about your rear-end.

    I would still much rather have an iffy differential that *may* go out and then spend the $2k then have to spend $2k for a strong engine.

    what ever you do do not waste your money on the pathetic 10 bolt. Rule of thumb is upgrade don't rebuild. Get a new 9".

    ya, the SS's have aluminum drive shafts. How much did you guys spend on your 12 bolts? I'm really worried that my rear might go out and I wont have enough to buy a better rear end. I don't want to be stuck in blind's position. I'm an upgrader more than a replacer.
