What is it that you need? Are you looking for a complete narrowed rear end or just someone to narrow a housing? If you have a '67 Camaro 12 bolt please don't cut it up. You need a housing from a Impala to cut. The Camaro housing is too rare to cut.

That would work,my brakes/backing plates are good to stay. I also want to change ratios to a 3.2 to 3.4 somewhere ??, thanks, Mike.

The 3.42 is an inexpensive gear for the 12 bolt. They run around $170. Aftermarket axles will also be needed. Because you will need new axles, you should get the housing ends that take the 9" Ford axle bearings. This will eliminate the C clips. If you wanted to go all out you could go with a 33 spline Eaton posi and 33 spline axles.

I hate to break in but BGH may have some good info for me. I need a 9" housing narrowed for a 68 and I live in Upper Michigan (North of green bay). Any contacts or sources you know of?? It already has a traction lock and I will buy axels if the ones in it are tapered.

J early,
I just bought a new, narrowed nine inch for my 69 and paid under 500.00 with all the brackets welded on. I'm running a ladder bar and coil over set up. The rear came from S&W racecars.

J early,
Try DTS in Warren Michigan.

If your looking for a complete rear end, Warren DTS isn't the ticket. They no longer build complete rear ends there. If you just need an existing housing narrowed, then they do good work. The DTS in Grand Rapids builds all of DTS's complete rear ends.
