    My swap was a touch more than 25lbs difference between the rears, although I did use the same rotors calipers on both rear ends. The 2 tenths was actual et on the same track and day. Maybe you could try the same test with yours at the track to see your results.

    It is expensive enough to get one rear end, much less two!

    I wish I could answer that for ya, but once my s60 comes in and I install it I can let you know. I would think the 12bolt would start to whine faster just because it dosn't have the rigidy that Dana 60 has.

    your rear should NOT whine if the gears are installed correctly... also, if you have gears and can't stand the whine then get some loud mouth exhaust...

    BS! 12 bolts whine with 4:10's or higher if you beat the crap out of em. I don't care tho cause mine hasn't failed yet. I hear alot about loud S60's now too.
