I'm pretty much done purchasing suspension parts and need ideers on my rear end. I want enough junk in the trunk to make the others back that ass up.

I'm thinking of 31 spline, 5 lug conversion w/disc brakes. Has anyone heard any good or bad about the the Eaton E-Locker? Probably just going to play it safe and go with the Detroit.

My last project was a jeep TJ on 37" tires. I'll never run an auto locker, spool, or and other type of non selectable locker on the street. Accelerated wear and drivability suffered a lot. The lockers do a great job but will buck like mad around corners. The elocker got some great reviews and from what I remember, but honestly I don't see what's the benefit over the tracloc our foxes have now. I actually swapped in an 8.8 to the jeep, I could lock up both 37" tires and spin them from a stop with it...

Yeah a jeep on 33s and a mustang on radials have a lot in common. A detroit locker, eaton posi, or spool are all fine unless your idea of performance is a cadillac. I drove a spool on the street and an eaton posi with no issues. Loved the constant both rear wheels traction.

WTF does ftmfw mean? While we're at it what does ftw mean?
So, an E-locker might work out well since I can just leave it unlocked for the most part on the street.

The title of your thread made me laugh a little.( How does this make my rear end look)

I thought my wife started a thread on slacks and jeans.

Ftmfw - for the mother ****ing win. I'm not sure if it's cuz I'm 33 or because I live in MN, but there was always people using acronyms that I didn't have a clue what they stood for. Someone told me you can just google it. Saved me from having to ask a **** load of times, hahaha

So I've been looking at getting my diff put together and I decided on a spool. I've been looking for the largest spline count I can find for the 8.8 and it looks like 35 is the best option. Moser has 35s but I was reading that they aren't any larger in diameter than the Strange 33 spline. I also heard that the Stranges were lighter. I would
Strange Pro Race 33 or 35 Spline Axles (1/2″) & Lightweight Spool -
Strange Pro Race Axles (up to 35 spline) (Pair)
Really like these...gun drilled with the 5 holes and the light flanges.


I would like to be loaded for bear. I'm tempted to just with a 9" housing

Goal is car seeing a ton of track with a Dart 427 with an adder (nitrous or turbo)

I've been waiting for the answer all day to the question I forgot to post. Would it be better to go with a 9" rear or stick with the 8.8 with a 35 spline Strange axles.
