Default Midwest Chassis & Performance fab rearends... new pics

Ok... time for a update. Since one of my customers already is already pimping his new setup, I guess I should post a few pics of the newest stuff. these are the newer laser cut housing bracketry with the 4 hole relocators built in. These brackets can be ordered at stock dimensions or custom narrowed and relocated for mini-tub cars. This bracketry setup is a standard feature on all rearends, as is a drainplug, stock type anti-sway brackets installed, brake hose mounts and brake line clips. 98-02 rearends have e-brake cable mount installed, also. All rearend packages also include a chassis-to-rearend brake hose adapter bracket to mount the brake hose where it originally bolted to the factory housing. You get the choice of tunnel mount or trans crossmember mounted adjustable torque arms with the applicable crossmember for M6, A4, th350/400, or powerglide. The short arm version comes with a driveshaft loop attached to the crossmember as a standard feature, we do have a bolt-on driveshaft loop available as a option for the long arms. All tubular components are constructed of 4130 chrommoly tube and tig welded. Heim joints are all USA- FK or Aurora brand, teflon lined aircraft quality units.
Center sections and axles(31-40 spline) consist of Strange or Moser(upon request) components; the new Yukon(quiet), Motive Performance or Richmond ring and pinions; spool, Wavetrac, Detroit Truetrac, locker, or clutch posi diff units; aluminum pro gear or aluminum daytona style pinion supports; Timken bearings. The all new Strange/Moser center sections are available in nodular iron or aluminum.

Some of the options are:
powdercoated assy(all parts less center for 150.00!) 3ch (yes i have 3 channel for the 9 inch!)or 4 channel abs/tcs, housing brace, rear filler cap, chromoly or aluminum driveshafts, new gm brake mounts, bolt-on tubular chromoly race anti-roll, Strange, US Brake, or Wilwood race brakes, tow loops, discount on new chromoly lca's - phb, Watts link locator, etc.

The base package includes bare fabricated housing, 35 spline Strange nodular center w/ spool and choice of street type gear, Strange 35 spline axles, chromoly double adjustable torque arm and crossmember. Use your brakes. All this for 2999.00 shipped... in 3 boxes. Completely assembled units available also, shipped on a crate via truck freight. Pm or call for quote on all setups.

Ps... these rearends are perfect for street cars or full on race cars! All assemblies custom built to your specs... any width, any gears, any axles you want! All gear assemblies are done in house. We are direct with Strange, Yukon, Moser, PST Driveline, AFCO, and Viking Performance. Great deals on any suspension components, gears, shocks, driveshafts, etc. This is the lightest, strongest, most complete "bolt-in" rearend you can buy for the f-body car.

This rearend housing has been outfitted with some optional equipment






(this customer had transverse shock mounts installed)






sorry about the focus... im a fabricator, not a photographer...lol

Looks like pics of LS1408cp's Formula...

He brought the car by my house on the way home. The pics do the work no justice.

It all looks awesome.

Do you sell just the crossmember with the adjustable torque arm mount (third picture)? Nice parts!

sure i'd do ya a crossmember... but it was designed for the torque arms i make. it probably won't work with what you have. i have a similar setup on my tunnel mounted versions for the stock type mounted torque arms.
