Default Anyone running aftermarket axles/posi units

I've seen some people here and there running with "custom" axles and eaton posi's in their 10 bolts...can someone give me some input on how they're holding up to the abuse? I'm on borrowed time on mine, and desperately want to run slicks. Also, if you guys would have to do it again, would you just spent the extra cash on a 12 bolt? Thanks!!!!!
Ken

IMO-you need to spend the money on a 12 bolt. [Wink]

With a M6 Hot Rod on slicks your going to blow up a 10 bolt. I have are ready done it. [Razz]

I put in a 12 bolt with a Eaton posi, 33 spline axles and blow up the posi the 1st time at HRP. So, we(Thunder Racing)put in a spool. [devil]

I do drive my Hot Rod on the street. No problems at all with running a spool. [Cool]

If I had to do it all over again, I would go with a 9 inch ford so I could change gears more often. [devil]

Good luck and Happy Holidays. [angel]

My friend is also running a spool on the street...does it affect driveability at all? I like to unwind the 'mula on the curves as well as in straight lines [Big Grin]
Thanks for the inputs on the rear...I was trying to save myself some money by going a different route, but I guess if I don't want any problems, I should just get myself a 12 bolt.
