Default Rear-End question?

I have a stock 1998 WS6 with an A4, I have 3.23's. Will going to a Moser 12", Eaton Posi, 33 spline with 3.73's make any noticable difference? Or will it be completely undetectable?

Sound?
Feel?

How much $$$?

Thanks

Is the Strange rear-end better, I've heard the Moser breaks quite often, I did a search and found this out.

What I mean by noticing anything is: will it be like nothing was done if I drive it normally on the street with F1's? I'm talking about noise or any other changes that I could notice.

People have had problems with Strange, Moser, 9", 12-Bolt, etc etc...
I think the only notice you will feel is from the gear.

The main problems are caused by the installers, so far my gears in the back are whisper quiet, Speed Inc. does a really good job on all of their work... [Smile]
