now not afraid of the Rearend in the car not working or Breaking at the Track
over 5 years of Street/Hwy Cruzin and Weekends at the Track with no problems

Clinton, I don't know your actual power level or how much racing you'll do on sticky tires but out of the three rears (12 bolt, 9 inch and Dana), the 12 bolt is the weakest. Long time racers have a 9 inch or Dana 60, and they'll be built by Strange.

Re: Where to buy 12 bolt?

The motor will be over 620hp and I know, I値l want more eventually. Quick performance pricing does seem noticeably cheaper. I知 Leaning more toward them but I値l make some phone calls first.

Re: Where to buy 12 bolt?

I think if you get the right parts from Moser it can take a lot more power than the stock 12 bolt. They have fixed all the areas that are know problems with 12 bolts. Weak house, 33 or 35 spline axles versus the 30 spline, Ford end bearings, Robust posi unit, 1/2 inch studs holding the carrier in, 1350 series U joint. It has 12 bolts on the back cover but I think that is about where it stops on what they left original on the rear. The ring gear still is 8.875 so that could be an issue. Ford 9 inch is a proven piece. Of course the Dana 60 is such a massive unit to begin with you really don't need anything with the S60.
