Project Chevelle Episode 11: 9-inch Rearend
Project Chevelle went from sleepy stocker to loud, fast, unruly hot rod the second we fired the 383 for the first time. With a bulletproof Tremec transmission behind it, we were on our way to muscle car glory. All that was standing in our way was the stock 10-bolt rearend, complete with open differential and weak 3.08 gear.
In this episode, we swap in one of our own bolt-in 9-inch Ford housings, Posi-Traction third-members, and tubular control arms. We cap off our install with a disc brake kit to help us bring it all to a halt.
