    I put one in my buddy's Formula this weekend. We went for a quick 4 mile ride and I did notice a slight wine from the rear end. The install was easy and the rear looks twice the size of the 10 bolt. We had to cut the ride short because the transmission would not go into OD. I will let you know more when I can ride in it again

    thanks a lot!! i'd really be interested in how you like it once you've broken it in a little, and as far as the wine i knew it was gonna have a little wine but hey your getting a bulletproof rear-end so of course its not gonna ride and sound like a cadillac altough did the wine happen all the time or just at certain speeds??

    did you just bolt the rear in or did you have to get a new drive shaft ect ect...?

    from what i've heard all you have to do is get a shorter driveshaft by 1.625" and thats it, it just bolts up in place of the stock one

    Would this be for an A4 or M6?

    The 9 3/4-inch ring gear diameter of the DANA 60 plays a major role in strength.
