    fuck the rebuild...go to a junk yard and find a used 10 bolt and suck it up for a little bit...Cleveland pick a part has a cluster fuck of rear ends for as low as 250 dollars...don't know where in Michigan you are but to me it'd be worth the drive, they're south of the OH turnpike

    Wouldn't that be like,,,,going backwards??? If not in a hurry to get the car on the street I don't see the point in shoving a 10 bolt in there for a short amount of time, only to pull it back out later. Thats alot of extra work.
    Not to mention I wouldn't pay $250 for a used 10 bolt anything....Shucks I've had 10 bolt housings just given to me. Once used and abused they aren't worth much more than a door stop.

    if you dont wanna drop $2000+ dollars on a 9'' or another 12 bolt and wanna get the car back on the road then $250 compared to 2000+ is chump change and worth it IMO

    From looking at his damage in the pics,,,,it appears to me he simply had a few ring gear bolts back out. Not the fault of the 12 bolt at all and very cheap repair.
    Probably new ring and pinion,,,a setup kit and thats about it. That will only set you back about $300 give or take. I'm sure the posi, and axles all survived just fine.

    Ya you could shove a 10 bolt in there and get on the road,,,but with the power this car is making I wouldn't even think of it. I'd simply service the 12 bolt in the car and hit the road again.

    I would like to hear the difference on the 3.73 going to 4.11, I might be saving for an s60, was thinking of going 4.11 as well.

    Will let you know. I just got the 12 bolt out a few minutes ago. I wish my bearing were pressed on my damn axles. Thats BS.

    This is besides the point by now. There are only a few points to this horrible string of bad luck I have encountered here.

    My 12 bolt fell apart

    I bought an awesome 9"

    Someone will be getting an awesome housing and axles for cheap from me. Hopefully here

    Sorry, I have not been on the site much and I get tired of hearing people bash a 12 bolt when it can handle a good amount for a small price.

    Not much. Im not bashing a 12 bolt. Hell, you think I would have ripped out this 12 bolt if it didnt blow up on me? Hell no! I was going to put 4.11's in it and call it good. For a long time at that.

    If only I put 4.11 in it earlier, I would have saved it

    Shit, I hope I didnt forget a step with my 9" assembly. To those of you that have assembled the Moser 9"...

    When pulling the studs through the housing, is it absolutely necessary to RTV around the head of the bolt? Im now worried about it leaking past the bolts. Some say to do it, some dont mention it. Do I need to worry?

    Thanks.

    If you are talking about the studs in the center section that hold the third member on,,,,,I always use sealant on them.

    Sealant on the threads or on the back of the stud?... in front of the head? Im trying to figure out if I have to wack these suckers back out or not. Or if I can just put some sealant on the threads.

    Sealant on the threads when you bolt the third member on should do the trick. Ford originally had bronze washers that went on first (before the nut) to keep it from leaking. I've only seen them forsale at some of the mustang restoration vendors. They don't come in the ring and pinion setup kits for some reason I never understood that. Getting cheap I guess.

    Well, They shipped me what seemed to be bronze washers, along with lock washers. I suppose some form of sealant on the threads will do me fine. I DO NOT want a leak from something stupid tomorrow.

    Sounds good, a dab of sealant, I work it into the threads with my fingers, and you will be golden.
    Seems without it,,,the gear oil eventually will find it's way past the stud, and work through the threads and cause a little seapage,,,not necessarily a dripping leak,,,but it may look wet around the bolts after time.
