    I like the LPW. Comes with a magnetic drain plug. The TA Girdle I had on my old 10 bolt did not.

    Can't link a non-sponsor site but if you google LPW rearend covers you'll find it.

    Put that money into a rearend worth a damn.


    Otherwise, the TA girdle is nice. So is the LPW.

    Yeah Luos is right. The girdle alone is really just an appearance mod. Throwing money in a stock rear is pointless.

    I agree with that. My LPW is on a 12 bolt. I wouldn't put the money into a 10 bolt.

    i have the ta and it is nice
    in my opinion the extra oil capacity and the bearing support is worth it to help maintain an already weak link

    if your not going for another rear, its not a bad investment.

    I was thinking about this for my car too I wasn`t shure wether to go with the SLP unit or the T/A , don`t have enough dough for a new rear so look`s like it`s gonna be the T/A cover for now .

    I'm saving up for a moser 12 bolt.. But it's hard to fund two projects... my T/A is my daily car and I have been working on the engine that is going into my 1984 fiero (2500 pound car).. I got a pretty built supercharged 3800 that I have been working on, hopefully 340rwhp in a 2500 pound car
