Series 2, 69' A-Body 12 bolt options and thoughts
I have the above rear end with new brakes and drums currently sporting a 3:55 spindle and Strange axles for drag racing. I am planning on putting a posi unit in and am wondering which units are the best bang for the buck and also thinking that i may want to go up to 3:33 gear.
Currently the car has 462 w/single plane old school Offy manifold and dual 650 Demons that puts out about the same HP and a very flat line of tq starting at 480-512 i set my red line at 5000 and have never have come close. It's mated to a TH350 built for 500 HP and a 2:56 peg leg rear.
Although i do like the gas mileage and loping on the freeway under 2000 rpm at 65, i feel it's giving away way too much HP, and want to find a Happy medium. Also i have 23" high rear tires on 15" rims and hear that the 69's are a half inch wider than the 66' so i will have to trim my wheel wells a bit as it already rubs with 4 in the car.
Any input is welcome, thanks in advance
