thankds i looked on there web page but they didn't have them listed maybe i'll stop down when i go down there to get my head rest @ midwest.did they have then in stock or did they order it for you? i wasn't there but i heard about it from brandon toftee 85t haven't heard anything about chris tho or how he is doing thats part of the reason i want these i had them in my old rear end but i sold that last year because i was going to move up but desided not to. after the two wreckes we have had this year that completely destroyed the cars and possible hurt somebody realy bad maybe now they will consider letting us run ford 9 in but i dought it.i should be done for saturday so i'll see you down there

The best thing to do is go get you an 8.5 rearend and change it out I did mine. All you have to do shorten top control arms.
The 8.5 has stronger axles and you can get gears pretty easy, I have never had a problem in the 7 years I have raced, plus the 8.5 is a little wider

i think they had to order them but it only took a few days and using a ford 9 inch would be nice but it will not happen

wam thats what i had before was a 8.5 out of a nova but now i have all the gears i need for the tracks i will be running in 7.5 so it's not realy in my budget to get another rear end or i would just get a 9 and move up like i planned and i can't run offset wheels in this class so that would make the rear wider than the front not something i want to do

ok thats cool,, was just trying to help, Try National Drivetrain,,(i am not sure of their web address) but I had a catalog and they had all kinds of axles, gear sets, you name it for a drivetrain they had it. You might hit pay dirt with them ( they are really inexpensive on their prices too) good luck, ick ome irt!!!
