    You planning on doing the custom work yourself, or having a shop do it? With any of them, it's going to take a lot of custom fabbing to get them to work- spring perches, lower control arm brackets, not to mention the torque arm mount, possible shortening or lengthening of the axles and axle tubes, ect.

    IMO, you'd be better off looking into a Moser, Strange, Midwest Chassis, or Currie unit. You can get quite a few different options, gear choices, ect. And they're pretty much bolt in. I run a Moser 9" in mine, as do quite a few others. I'm pushing closer to 450 hp, and have not had any issues. I also run 4.10s, and with a M6 I haven't noticed any change in gas mileage.

    With the options I chose - which upgraded some stuff, just over $3k to my door. Bolted it in myself in a day.

    I am going with a Midwest Chassis Fab 9 myself. I have some of there stuff already and will be ordering more. The whole suspension on my street driven racecar will be MWC minus the cage.
