Gears & Axles - Ford 8"
09-15-2009, 08:03 PM
Has anyone ever used an old Ford 8" rear end? I was just wondering how strong these are compared to the stock 10-bolts. I got what I thought was a 9" but it turned out to be an 8". Someone give me some input please!

^^Good stuff right there...ha.
There are people that have done this, torque arm mount is always the big hurdle when putting a rearend not designed for these cars in. I talked to a guy that did this, said if he was to do it again he would just buy a moser/strange, etc. He had endless issues and ended up costing him the same if not more to make it work in the end. That was enough for me, not to have to worry everytime I leave the line if my Tq arm was going to break off of the housing.
Can get a decent second hand deal for about $1500-$1800.

there's a guy on here that put a 8.8 in his car and did away with the torque arm, he put like mini traction bars on the axle tubes attached to the chassis.
