Invest in a cast alum rear cover like the one T/A Performance offers.
You'll need to set some pre-load on the bearing caps to prevent the pinion gear from pushing the ring gear out the back of the housing.

And always "load" the driveline before setting the car on the T Brake.


?????

Once the brake is set, the "driveline / chassis" load goes to zero.

Ever watch guys roll in and then set the brake when the stage light comes on ? The car rocks back and forth - no load on driveline / chassis.

You could but why?

Just bump in until the stage light comes on, stop the car with the car brakes, press the TB button, concentrate on the tree while removing your foot off the brake pedal. This procedure works quite well.

Sorry about hijacking the thread, but how about this same rear end with a ladder bar setup. Would it live a little longer or would the setup eat the rear end up faster?

Won't live as long due to the ladder bar setup.

Although he didn't say, I bet he's running leaf springs w/ slapper bars. The leaf springs will take away a lot of shock to the rear end.

You'd be better off with another rear end: 12-bolt or 9". Gears are much stronger. The housings can be beefed up as well.

At a minimum, you need a rear girdle cover - like TA Performance sells.

Good luck.

Just know this, sometimes when a rear end fails, it will take the transmission with it.
