Re: 12 bolt

First thing first... what are your plans for the car? What gears?

If you don't mind me asking, what did you pay for it? I'm looking at one up here; 3.08 peg leg for $800? Came out of a 68.

Re: 12 bolt

Search button will help you find a lot about the 4-links, etc.

I plan on swapping out my 10-bolt in the winter and throwing in a Moser 12-bolt. I think Im gonna go with a 4-link as well while Im doing the rear end... along with a minitub.

Frank at Prodigy Customs can be a huge help. He answered a lot of Qs I had.

Built rear & 4-link coming soon...

For what it's worth, I paid $800 for my 12 bolt posi (3.31's) with all the internals in good working order. The exterior needed a lot of freshening up, and I threw the old drums away in favor of the new Wilwoods.

My costs were $800 for the 12 bolt, another $250 for the Moser axles and $100 for a fancy cover, so right around $1150, plus a lot of my own labor and a couple of cans of spray paint. I'm not counting the $1000 worth of brakes because I would have had to pay for those on a new rear end as well.

That's what I was thinking Brent. But they are hard to come by. I was thinking another $1000 to throw the posi and such in it. Moser like I want it $2200. $400 savings... maybe! LOL

OP stick with the springs if you're not tracking the car. It will be cheaper!
