Like the title say's I need help identifying a 12-bolt made for the F-body I picked one up off craigslist for an amazing deal but I don't know who its made by the only real casting on it is a number on the passenger side axle tube housing and a ME003 in the carrier housing any help would be great
If you mean for a third or fourth gen, then you are looking for a specific shock and most importantly torque arm mounting areas.
Should have provisions for the 2 bolts and machines areas where the TQ attaches to the housing.
I know its for a f body its got the torque arm mount spring mounts and all I watched the guy unbolt it out of a 1998 T/A I was just wondering who the manufacturer was ex. Strange or Moser after looking at pics on yahoo I'm pretty sure it's a Moser by the way the torque arm mount is cast but still would like to know if anyone knows by the ME003 cast in the housing
Thanks man that helps a lot, Picked the thing up for $500 complete with drilled and slotted rotors they guy was an import guy had bought the T/A to put the ls1 and t56 in a 300zx to make a drift car said he bought the whole car for $500 with title wish i could have found it first lol
Strong suggestion before putting that 12-bolt directly in is rebuild it first to save yourself some possible hassles. Change the axle bearings from ball bearing to tapered and put in a new ring and pinion. 12-bolts are prone to ring and pinion noise over time and not knowing the age or miles on the housing it may be due plus a tapered bearing is better choice for a street driven vehicle. If it already hasn't been changed or ordered with tapered bearings.
Once you do that you'll be like new and ready to rock with a good rear end.
There are a solid number of people on LS1Tech with quiet 12 bolts, mostly behind an A4, but with quality parts and the correct break-in cycle you should be fine unless you're constantly launching 500 wheel HP on slicks.
