posted January 10, 2001 04:57 PM I'm running a 1985 Monte in purestock class this year with a 355 engine. I'm running a 7.5 rear end with a power glide or turbo 350 not yet sure on the tranny yet. I heard that the 7.5 is good for breaking axles. I was wondering what if anything I could do to strenghten the rear end so I don't have problems with it. Please help. Thanks!!!!!
