I have an 8.2 inch open rear end that I am going to be doing a rebuild on. What brand should I use? I only put about 3000 miles a year on the car (topps), and go to the strip 10-15 times a year (no slick)drag radials. Please let me know what brand posi you are using?

I own a performance rear end shop and I've put a lot of different posis in. I do not recomend the Auburn unless there is nothing else available. The US Gear unit is a copy of the Eaton. It may be built a little heavier than the Eaton, I think the springs are stronger which will make it lock up better but may cause it to pop a lot. I would probably go with the Eaton. www.eatonposi.com

I believe the US Gear posi clutches are rebuidable, but the Auburn's are not.

Yea, $44 for a oil pan gasket. That hurt. Come on over and help me put my Camaro back together. You can lay on your back and clean oil off the bottom of the floor can't you?

Perks67,
I just installed a new Moser 12 bolt, bought it with an eaton posi unit. I here they are very reliable and rebuildable. The 8.2 that came out of my car is equipped with a PG diff, it seems to work great, I bought it through reider racing rears and gears. I set it up with US gear 4.56 and had 3.73 on it as well also a set of moser axles. What do I do with it now! Good luck

perks67,
You can contact me at [email protected]. I'm in Central City, Ky. Name is Byars Performance. I'm Freddie. This is a small business and I try to keep it that way so I can specialize in rear ends. That means I also have to have a real job to keep the family fed.

Look, 427 posts!
