Depends on your ultimate plans i suppose. If you don't run slicks and drive it like it's stolen the stocker will suffice until you get the funds to upgrade. I would say 9 inch Ford or a 12 bolt Chevy. Look at Strange Engineering, Currie, Moser for anything from housings, brakes to complete assemblies. The Ford rear will offer the most brake and gear ratio options. Ultimate "Pro Street" strength I would say Dana 60 but I don't think you'll need that for your car.

Got any pics of your project to share?
