Saw the update interested in a price quote for:

40 spline Moser axles, solid no lightening, 5/8" studs.

Strange pro or Moser nodular iron center section (not "S" type street version), w/ motive performance gear.

Trans mounted (long) torque arm.

No ABS.

Housing bare (uncoated or painted).

Nice stuff, back brace will make it really strong, one day if you ever go really fast and step it up you just just upgrade the axles and center section and the housing is good to go already.

Post a lot of pics when you get it I want to check it out

I'm going to go trans mounted torque arm, back brace, narrowed LCA 4 holes, 40 spline Moser axles, Strange PRO nodular iron center with US Gear and 5/8 studs on mine.

I'm excited already and I haven't even ordered mine

That I did not know. I guess I'm going to be getting some other stuff too when my tax return comes.

I have a dumb question. Is there anyway to make this rearend work with the stock torque arm? My car may see the track just a few times a year and I don't really want to switch from my stock torque arm to another. I just might switch if needed though

Right now; no. He doesn't have an adapter bracket made up yet to use the stock style tq arm.

its coming.... be patient!

these new design torque arms have so many benefits compared to a stock or stock type mounted arm. they're lighter, much stronger, adjustable height and angle, and the link is urethane mounted to the crossmembers to eliminate any noise. a great performer on the street or strip, and will clear ory type exhaust or even duals!

i have talked to Eric numerous times about a rear. He is one of th emost stand up dudes I have ever spoke too. Always willing to answer questions, even though eh knew I didnt have cash at the time to buy one. He will get my business forsure as soon as I have teh cash.
