Default Pick a 9" Rear for my car.

I need help in deciding what rearend to put in my car. I can't decide on whether to get a Stamped housing 9" OR a fabricated housing 9" (Like the Moser M9).

Personally, I am leaning towards the M9, but after talking to a few local racers, the consensus of opinion is that I shouldn't waste my money on Fab 9 stuff.

Specifics:

Third gen Camaro.
Small-block single turbo car (800-1000hp)
Stock-style suspension.
Will see a fair amount to street use.

Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks.

Check ours out. A little more than stamped, but a lot more features including a back brace.

I voted "stamped" but the stock type is not a simple stamping. It's a "banjo" type axle and it is made from a number of stamped pieces that are welded together. So, it is "fabbed" in a sense.

Best description I could find with a quick Google search:
A method for manufacturing a banjo-type drive axle housing for a motor vehicle is disclosed. The first step is the operation of forming the substantially identical upper and lower half members having a U-shaped cross-section along entire length thereof with radially extending wall sections. Each of the members is metal formed, such as by stamping or forging, from a blank sheet of steel. Next step is to select a desired box-section of an axle beam portions, and a desired size of an opening in a central portion of the axle housing. Then, if necessary, the wall sections of the housing half members are trimmed so that when assembled said housing half members provide the desired box section and size of the opening in the central portion of the axle housing. Finally, the trimmed housing half members are welded to each other to produce the axle housing.

Here's a link to a pic showing how the pieces might fit together.

Burkhart has really nice rearends/parts and fair prices. I just ordered a Fab 9" housing/axles etc... from Chuck Burkhart and he is very knowledgeable and very friendly as well. Thanks again Chuck. later Clint

I did talk to Burkhart last week (can't recall the guy's name off-hand), they answered all my dumb questions. I like how they setup their housings to use anyone's suspension parts instead of forcing you to buy their TA/cross-member like other companies that make Fab9 housings.

I know the benefits of an aftermarket braced rear end and the super trick ones like TRZ and Burkhart, but has anybody ever seen an aftermarket 9" housing such as those by Moser or Strange fail without a backbrace?

For under 800-1,000HP the stock style housing should work fine but will you go faster?

If I plan on going faster, I don't want to have to spend money twice to upgrade again down the road.

Having said that, I pulled the trigger on the Burkhart Chassis piece.
