    Up for sale in this ad is my 10 bolt rear end from a '79. I have over $1k in parts in this rear end and it's been pretty well thought out for how I had it set up. Only reason for selling is because I'm moving to a new house fairly soon and need a little extra cash. I had this rear end set up for 2.73 highway gearing to make for a "cheater overdrive" behind a 4 speed and shorter "pro-touring" type tires. With the axles welded to center section and 30 spline upgrade, this setup should be able to take some serious horsepower. The Strange pinion yoke is machined to accept a speed sensor so that a traction control can be utilized with a drag race style efi computer. If going behind a manual transmission, I would suggest a trans with 2.64+ 1st gear ratio. Would be great behind an automatic as well. This is a great deal for anyone who wants to buy. Price is as low as I will go and not negotiable.

    -Moser 30 spline axles. Currently has press-in studs for stock 2nd gen lug nuts but the flanges are also predrilled for screw-in 1/2" wheel studs if desired.
    -Eaton Detroit Truetrac carrier (30 spline upgrade)
    -Strange Engineering 1350 chrome moly driveshaft yoke (https://www.strangeengineering.net/product/gm-8-5-10-blt-yoke-1350-strange-chrome-moly.html/)
    -Motive Gear ring and pinion (2.73 ratio)
    -Crush sleeve eliminator kit
    -Axle tubes fully welded to center section by Rocket Racing in Waterford, WI. (https://rocketracingperformance.com/)
    -Wheel studs set up for stock style 2nd gen lug nuts and wheels


    Below is when I had it built last year (brakes not included).
