    with any power I don't think they will last long with posi and 4:11.
    my Detroit locker with 3:55s twisted them, w/street tires.

    I see you're in Charleston too. I've not seen any maverick/Comet around here. Would love to see what you're working with.

    I'm not drivable yet either. I'm on suspension now. Diskbrake upgrade next, driveshaft and tires before i can see if this thing moves on its own.

    I work at AFB.

    Any luck finding 4.11 8inch?

    Probally 1 of my best upgrade was to replace my 8in with a 9in in my mustang.

    Was in delaware at time so lots of resource. Found 9 in housing. Ordered 31 spline axle. Ordered and picked up 3.89 Detroit locker from a guy in PA.

    Locker been problem free since yr 2000. Don't race anymore however.
