Default Mavns Quick Performance 9" Install.

Heres some Pics from my Quick Performance 9" Install.


Things I had to modify:

1: Torque Arm Mount was too wide and my TQ arm would NOT Line up so I had to grind it down.

2: I had to literally Cut 1 coil off of my 2" Lowerng springs because the spring Pirch was sitting too tall I Looked like I had a lift kit lol

3: Torque arm would NOT Fit in the tunnel so I had to take a Hammer to it lol

Now that its In its Fantastic. I need to modify the tunnel some more .

[non-sponsor pricing removed]

Even with all of the fitment work you had to perform, you're way better off than me and my crooked-assed MWC fab9 rear. Good job!

To me that seems like a junk rear end if u have to smash the tunnel in that much to accommodate that rear end.

When my T/A goes 9", it'll be a fab 9 from midwest. The only option that comes close in my eyes is an S60 with an S-trac.

I mean you are cramming a monster rear end into a car it wasn't designed for, you have to expect some mods. I had to hammer my tunnel too.

We actually have more room than most of the others because of our torque arm design.

Thats correct, its bigger then the stock rear but also a stock style torque arm adds another monkey wrench in the situation.

I've put two Midwest chassis fab 9's in and had no trouble at all. No modifying no beating just install it and go. I wasn't aware the stamped steel housings had these issues

This is happens because the only way you can fit a torque arm onto a stamped housing is to move the pinion closer to the passenger side and the mounting points closer to the drivers side.

This is an issue with all stamped housing of course some worse than others and why we mount our torque arm the way we do eliminating the stock style torque arm configuration.

These are the things you will notice when you purchase from a company that engineered their own product, install their own product, and use their own product.

Those reasons above are what sets us apart from companies that are just parts slingers. Not to mention we keep in contact with our customers, customers are and will always give valued feedback.

Every manufacturer can mess up every now and then, I'm not aware of any Moser fabricated rears going out messed up, but I'm sure it could happen.

Moser has been building fabricated 9 inch rears since 2007, they come with an excellent chromoly torque arm that is telescopic, and has plenty of clearance.



Contrary to what one vendor on here has mentioned, Moser's fabricated rear also comes with a drain and a large fill as standard equipment.



Moser is one of the few companies that design their own rear who also make their own center section and axles.




Moser's fabricated 9 inch rears do not come with brake line clips built on to the housing, but if you can live without brake line clips a moser fabricated 9 inch that isn't powder coated typically ships out the same week it is ordered.

If you order a Moser rear through Brute Speed, sway bar brackets come standard. Bob
