Dude your in for alot of work making one that isn't already adapted to a f-body fit. It's not even worth the hassle. Just keep the center section & buy a Moser Housing/Axle package & be done with it.

If the rear is not designed for an f body, your best bet is to buy a Moser housing and axle package for $1050.00 shipped. http://www.exoticperformanceplus.com/performance_parts/index.html?item=1116 You would then use the center section from the 9 inch rear that you currently have. You won't have your ABS working, but that is not a problem for most people. If you do need to keep your ABS, Moser now offers complete 9 inch rears with the ABS option.
You can find them here. http://www.exoticperformanceplus.com/performance_parts/index.html?item=145

To use your housing and to try to modify it to make it work on an F Body, if it was not designed for our cars, is expensive and a real hassle. Bob

Don't waste your time. Too much trouble and work to modify one. Buy the housing and axle package and save yourself the headache. Units start at $975.00 for the F Body on our website. Check it out and let me know if you have any questions. Free shipping included.

Yes, you would be better off using the center section with the Moser housing/axle package. Bob
