Rear Axel and differential?


Recommended Posts

I just got this thing back on the road atleast running properly and the body and interior where I wanted it. Thing is, it PREVIOUSLY was set up and tubbed out for drag. The mounts are already there to move the shocks and all to bring the 22 inch micky thompsons in so they werent sticking out the sides. BUT, it has a stock differential and axle on it right now.


I will be running a 410 horse 350 4 bolt, 3500 cams, 3500 stall and turbo400 trans with shiftkit, and also throwing on NOS "possibly".


What would I need to get specifically to bring the wheels back in under the bed, and what gears and such should I run? I know the differential should be posi or limited slip minimum, and we have to flip flop the leaf springs, but what should I do, and wheres a good place to get, anything to optimize the power I will have? I don't want to CUT the axels myself, I wish I could buy the whole unit already done up just put on and go. Maybe theres a place that I can get it?


Anyways, just looking for the technical recommendation. Imiagine its yours, you want to be "somewhat econimical," but want max optimal performance for the motor from the back end and the wheel back under the tubs? Maybe that makes the question easier.


Oh, and if you know or have anyone who has one laying around that would be perfect for this let me know. Dont feel like posting in the for sale and wanted right now I am having troublke using the forums today. THANKS!
