That is hopefully the answer I need. So I know what to order when I call them.
can u keep me posted if u find a bolt in rear I need to find one for my 70 Buick Electra Preferably a 12 bolt it can be a lil shorter
I've been exploring this rabbit hole for almost 2 years now. While I am all for keeping it original, (to an extent) I've been looking into replacing my rear end altogether. However, no shop will build me one. They just want to sell me parts to do myself.
I will bet you that Brian or Jim on this Board will do this build for you.
Would this work for my 61 Lesabre 4 Door HT
No. You have a torque tube drive and without a ton of fabrication the 8.5" won't just drop in.
What about a 62 Lesabre?
Same deal. Buick used Dynaflows up to 1964 when they changed to open drive lines and more modern transmissions.
61,62 and 63 were open driveline with the Dynaflow 1960 was the last of the torque tube for Buick.
Really? I was not aware of that. I thought it went until 1964. My bad...
what is the primary failure origin for the 9-3/8” rear? Can it handle sustained 500hp/535T loading like in a closed course?
if still available i would like it I'm in the uk so can't get parts email@example.com
