Found two yes two 9" rears today after a six month drought! Both are out of Granadas one has disc brakes the other has drum.

How much should I pay for each?

Now all I have to do is figure out if I want rear disc or not?

Thanks Money for the reply! I went to a yard yesterday and was able to take a look around. I found the two diffs.
I won't find out till monday how much they are asking because the yard guy was on vacation and he has to determine the value and type of the diffs...? So to be continued.

I know this subject has come up before, but what are the best cars to look for in the parts yard that will probably have an 8" rear with traction-lok? I seem to remember Alex mentioning mid 70's cars, but don't recall what cars specifically. If there is a certain 2 or 3 cars to look for, what are the data plate codes for, say, a 3.20 8" traction-lok.

That would be a '74-'76 V6 Pinto or Mustang II, with an axle code of X for a 3.55 Trac Loc, or a code of O for a 3.00 Trac Lok.

Thanks Steve. I assume then that those Pinto's and Mustang II's didn't come with 3.20 tracton-lok gearing, huh?

Sundance Kid,
I paid $250 for my '78 Versailles disk rear 10 years ago....so figure inflation, scarcity, etc.. $300 would be a good price. $400 to $500 depending upon condition is probably closer to market these days.

Be sure to grab the shock mounting plates from the donor car...and the emergency brake cables too. It's not a straight forward install, but do-able. There are a few web site with how-to articles on this swap.

I like the idea a biting the bullet and laying out $395 for a fresh 9" Posi 350:1 center section at Joe's HiPo parts in Pa. See post a few pages back.

Mellow, I like that price, but then I'd still have to lay out 150 or 200 for a 9" housing. Any chance this Joe's place has a website or anybody know what this guy charges for 8" posi's? Got the number off the other thread, its 724-459-8562, just haven't had time to call from CA during east coast business hours.

My rear has been whining at certain speeds for a long time now, but lately the pitch is different around 52-54 mph and its really bugging me. I think one of the pinion bearings might be going (this happened in my F-150 a few years back) so I'll either be laying out cash to put new bearings in a 2.79 open rear or buying a new center section. Hmmmm, lets call that an easy decision on what's better in the long run.

Sig, for a complete pig, you can try currie (www.currieenterprises.com) I can't remember if they listed 8 inch trac-locs or not....
