I just bought a custom Brand new 9" rear end. I got the Moser case and 35 spline axles. I then added the Strange Pro Nodular case with Motive Performance 4.30 Gears and a Detroit locker. I think Moser has the better case and axles but Strange make a better 3rd member.
Strange makes a Dana 60 for the fbody, They are Ideally the best rear end you can get however, I have researched that the torque arm mount is not that good on the strange housing and the rear end housing is tweaking and causeing gear whine. + you have to do a few more things to get them to fit (shorten the drive line, send in your backing plates to get welded to the axles or purchase new ones), And they have a back order of 4-5 weeks.
Unless you have over 1000 hp which I highly doubt, the moser 9" with 35 spline axles is more than enough. They have been around long enough to prove themselves. I would not recommend a 12 bolt with a 6 speed the 9" has a much better torque arm design and the gears will remain quiet. + the 12 bolt has a 8.75 ring gear and the 9" has a 9" ring gear.2000 SS Camaro Heads, Large cam, Fast 90, 9"w/430's and locker, yada yada yada... you get the picture
