Was going to keep this as a suprise, but as part of Phase 2 for Gretchen Tracy will be working on putting a LSD rear end with axles and new drive shaft on her. He should know all about what it will take by then. He'll also be keeping my rearend (A6) to see if anything like the Jannity LSD mod for all that has one. No promise anything will come of that because it is a totally different situation than what the SS guys had, but at least he'll be able to look at it.

Opps, forgot about that.

Ok guys here's what I did got most my parts from member sellrs and e-bay.
1-V8/M6 diff with already modified posi so thus 3:45 gears 700.00
2-V8/A6 axles. 100.00 for both
3-V8/A6 drive shaft $100.00 (Use your trany section shaft of you V6 and use the diff end of the V8 shaft and thus you get the correct length.
4-New cushion for V8 drive shaft end
5-2 Rear wheel bearing hubs for a V6/M6. (I originally forgot these. Bought new at $140.00 ea. total 280.00
6- Trifecta tune to call speedo. and Vince modded some other stuff too such as shift poins etc.

NO tune needed if you use the diff with the 3:27 gears..V6/M6 V8/A6

I reached out to buddy across town and he says to use the automatic SS rear portion. Will purchase one tomorrow at EKQ

Midway Mustangs in Davenport Ia has a whole bunch of 3.27 LSD complete cradles. This includes lsd diff, both axles, hubs and backing plate. Some have very low mileage. Check them out on ebay http://stores.ebay.com/Midway-Mustang?_ ... 7675.l2563
