Rear end estimated to arrive 8/10/06!!

By SickSpeedMonte

Filed under: 1985 Chevrolet Monte Carlo (SickSpeed)

The day has finally come that I have my 8.5" posi rear in the mail! It has BRAND NEW posi clutches, installed just before it was shipped. It also has 4.10:1 gears (Stock for my car, which is in it, is 3.73:1). These gears should give me some more acceleration by increasing the torque to the ground, and the increased RPM's wont be a problem with my 6 speed.

Also installed already is a set of hardened Moser axels, and a pair of lower control arm relocation brackets have been welded on.

To install this, I will need to shorten my driveshaft again, and order a set of new bushings as well. Eventually, I will install adjustable upper control arms so that I can get the pinion angle right, and install a set of disc brakes on the rear as well.
