Posi-traction Conversion 8.2”
Happy New Year Everyone! My ‘65/389 has open 8.2” rear end with 3.08 gear, th400 transmission. I’d like to change it over to a posi-traction but I’m at a loss to know which brand or type unit to use. I’m happy with the 3.08 gear but it seems the posi’s for the 8.2 require 3.31 or lower gear, like a 3.36. I mostly cruise around town and highways but wouldn’t mind seeing what it would do in the 1/8 or 1/4 mile occasionally. Also, I’m running 235-70R15 on the rear, 28” OD which is a fairly tall tire. So I’d like some sound advice as to whether the 8.2 is worth converting to posi or should I go with a 8.5” or 12 bolt and... what brand posi unit is the most bang for the buck, reliable, durable, i.e. Yukon, Richmond, Detroit Locker, etc? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
