Needing new housing

Looking for a fabricator to build a new rear end housing for my '72 Camaro pro streeter. I don't wanna spend $1500 plus for a new housing. I'm going narrower and switching to 4-link, also needs back brace and setup for small bearing Ford axles. I have Strange axles from my old housing I can have cut down and resplined.

I may be old and slow, but ........what the heck was I gonna say?

Sounds like fun Jeff!!!!! You might want to consider having those Strange axles re-heat treated if you are going to have them cut down & resplined....JMO.

Went with American Race Components Hot Rod Fab9 housing. Having the small back brace added. Really nice piece.

Re: Needing new housing

Sorry, the title "Needing new housing" threw me. I thought maybe you spent too much on your car and were sleeping in the garage. Never mind...
