    Strange S60 or 12 Bolt?

    I am looking into a new Strange Rear I am kind of confused as to whether I should go with the S60 or the 12 bolt drop in rears for my 02 TA. Any help? Also what ABS do I go with 3 or 4? I need it to be a direct bolt in, I want to keep the brakes stock if I have 2.

    Thanks

    I am not sure what I want to do yet, The car is a daily driver even though I do not drive it daily. What would you do?

    I'm leaning towards the 9". It's stronger than the 12 and lighter than the 60. I'm still researching them though.

    What kind of brakes are you using? Can you still use Stock or do you really need the Explorer ones?

    also worth noting is that the 9" is the lease efficient of the 3 rear ends..so even tho its lighter it still eats up power. The new strange dana s60 is built to be a direct bolt on for f-bodies..it also is the strongest and the most efficient...there will be no questions when i decide to get a new rear...it will be a dana s60

    The 12 bolt and the Dana rears scare me when it comes to the torque arm bolting on.
    If it breaks...the whole rearend is trashed.

    I went 9". Torque arm bracket brakes?? Replace the bracket, not the whole rearend.
    Will most have to concern themselves with breaking that?? No.


    If I had to do it again...I would go with the same thing I did, but with the aluminum center section.

    see now i have hear horror stories about moser...i heard strange is slllllllllllllllllooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwww with getting you their rear. Dont get me wrong C..i dont mind the 9" but its not necessarily a bolt on rear end..and plus you trade off efficiency for the strength..so why not go with even more strength and the best efficiency that actually outweights the lose in weight....p.s get on aim..i need to im you
