Gears & Axles - Question about putting 3 channel rear in 4 channel car...
05-05-2012, 10:27 AM
Ok my car is 4 channel.. I bought a 3 channel SS rearend.... I did a search and see it can be done my taking the 4 channel axles out and putting them in the 3 channel rear..
What will happen if i put the 3 channel rear in and NOT change axles,, No traction control i know but what about ABS??

If you can't plug in the ABS sensors, you won't have traction control or ABS. That's it lol

^^^ true,agree. the 4channel sensors in the 4 channel backing plates read and control both ABS and TC. and your light will be permanently on and can't be turned off as it's part of the SAFETY system.

so i'm assuming you don't need to change out the axles from the 4 channel rear end correct? main difference is just the plug for the abs/tc? I'm wanting to also purchase a 3 channel complete rear for my 4 channel rear/car. I will not have to trade out axles correct?

If you are going from a 4 channel rear to a 3 channel rear, you need to put the 4 channel axles in. They have a toothed ring pressed on to the end that the sensor reads for tcs/abs.

My cars a 4 channel car but abs is gettin deleted and traction control as well because a spool rear end wont work with eather system it wont hurt the car to not have eather one its just a personal prefrence and if u can put up with light staying on plus if chance to track tires with skinnies in front and 27-29 inch tall radials in the rear your abs will go crazy anyways
