Where to buy 12 bolt?

Looks like I’ll be upgrading my rear end from a 67 10 bolt to a 12 bolt in my 70. After no luck in finding one on Craigslist, marketplace, etc. I’m thinking about biting the bullet for a new setup. Where would the best bargain be? It will need to support around 700 hp.

Re: Where to buy 12 bolt?

I bought a Moser 12 bolt for my 66 Chevelle two years ago. Great part, much beefier than an OEM unit. The casting is much thicker and heavier and the axle tubes are thicker. The bare Moser housing weighed more than my OEM housing and axles. Moser gives several options for housing ends, giving several options for brakes and styles of axle retention.

Check Summit racing, see if they offer free shipping.

Re: Where to buy 12 bolt?

I got sick and tired of Rebuilding the 12 Bolt in my 67
as every year it was rebuilt it would stop working or break something the next year

Bought a S60 from Strange that was a direct bolt-in with Brackets installed plus Ford Ends

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

I believe he sold the car and pursued a hobby associated with motorcycles. His videos never fail to impress me. My goal is to make my car launch like that for the shear wow factor alone.

Re: Where to buy 12 bolt?

I'll second the Quick Performance recommendation. Nice website where you can tweak it to exactly what you want. They are great on the phone if you need help and shipping was much more reasonable than I expected. I went for a "big web" housing, extra thick axle tubes and internal gusseting that should be good for 800hp. I also researched Strange and Moser and I think the QP unit was around $800 less, granted I ordered the housing, axles and 3rd member separately and assembled it myself.

Re: Where to buy 12 bolt?

I purchased my Moser 12 bolt from Trick Chassis. They were much cheaper than purchasing directly through Moser. The total cost with shipping and taxes was less than Moser's advertised price. Trick Chassis is also a dealer for other brands, as I purchased a 9 inch and strange parts from them for another car.
