    BESIDES the driveshaft tunnel, my Moser is fine. Just watch out for the top of the torque arm smashing into the body of the car.

    so If I go with the S60, can I use an aftermarket torque arm with the torque arm relocation bracket?

    No.
    I already mentioned that.

    Get what you want. Some torque arm manufacturers ask what rearend you have in the car is why I asked.

    ahhh I see, I havn`t gotten either yet and I am confused as to what to buy. So when I purchase the torque arm I should state that I run an S60 if that is what I have?

    Yes. Just in case. Depends on which torque arm you go with. Not sure which ones it makes a difference one.
    UMI asked...but the same torque arm worked on my 10 bolt and my 9".

    Neither!! I would put a 9" in it. Stronger,less power to spin,easier gear swaps,looks much cleaner.

    You can get a complete 9" with a Detroit Locker for cheaper that that S60 or a 12 bolt.

    They will beat anyones prices and if you do some research a few other members have already bought one from these guys. They will make what ever length you want for added tire clearance also.

    Is your car manual or auto? For an auto a 12 bolt (prefferibly Strange) will do fine. Most efficient of em all. For manual I'd go 9' with Detroit Locker. Strongest of the 3.

    both of you guys are wrong..the dana s60 is the strongest by far and also the 9" does not take less power to spin then the other two..thats a downright lie actually..the 9" is the most inefficient of the 3.

    9 is the cheapest..followed by the dana s60 and then the 12bolt
    the s60 is the most efficient , followed by the 12 then the 9"
    the 9 is the heaviest, then the 12, then the s60

    Moser 9" with tru track, 3.70. With traction control, pretty much a direct bolt in. UMI Lower control arms and relocation brackets welded in. Torque arm and relocation bracket just a slight thud under car when changing gear from drive to reverse, its barely noticeable. SSSSOOOO much better than the 10 bolt and stock suspension setup. Its alot more stable and I dont think it sits any higher either. Also using stock brakes. But it took awhile to get here. Also some gear whine but only at decel and just like the thud its barely notice able. (If the radio is on you cannot hear it at all)

    I have a buddy thats camming his SS and its getting a 12 bolt- the 12 bolt with 3.93s, should be here next week.

    CustomSSI did mine. Got a really good deal on it and install.
