Default got my Midwest Chassis fab 9"!

just in time! I had been talking with Eric before Christmas and put my order in just around New Year. Yesterday I got the rear and put it in and today went through the break-in process. I didnt come across any issues other than dealing with the brake lines. The rear comes so you can feed the brake lines through some stock style clips and a guide which I did not use. I didnt remove my calipers for the install so I didnt have to bleed the brakes. All I did for this was cut the stock brake LCA braket off and secured it to the said guide that was welded to the axle tube. I bent my brake lines so it would look a little better.

THE REAR IS DEAD QUIET!!!!!! All thats left to do now is get the anti-roll bar welded and set. Thanks again Eric! This rear is a work of ART. I have no doubt this will hold up to whatever I throw at it. Now on to the pics............
As it came crated. Alot of time was spent crating this up.

Bolted and tied down.

Parts that come with it






Where the brake line junction bolts

Where the ABS sensor bolts to the housing(sensor not included)

Any reason you picked the "S" series 3rd member over the PRO iron nodular?

Looks good he did a great jo on my cage and I should be getting a rearend from him soon. What do you think of the antiroll bar? I'll be getting basically the same setup.

the roll bar is very nice. I like that he powdercoated the endlinks too. I'm taking it tomorrow morning to get the tabs welded and then will do some more break in miles.

Was this rear end a complete bolt in ? or did you have to do any cutting, welding, bending, etc ?

^^^ this was the customers choice. there are attaching clips and tabs for the rubber hose to clip on if you so desire to do it that way. you would have to disassemble the hoses and pipes, reposition onto the supplied mount, and bleed the brakes to do this. the brake liones are probably the hardest part of the install. other than that, it is truely the most complete bolt-in assy you can buy.

word. brake lines were probably the most difficult. pretty hard for me to cut those brackets while dangling

Looks to me the jackstands are on plywood. I would consider that fine.

Haha, your garage looks a lot like mine at the house. Mine's the end of the driveway where it meets the road. I need some money badly. I've got to order three of these things now that I have the 93.
