The Oldsmobile 12-bolt rear axle assembly was swapped in favor of a new Moser Engineering Chevrolet 12-bolt rear end. This one is loaded with a Detroit Tru-Trac limited-slip differential, 31 spline axles, and a new 3.73:1 gear ratio.
The Moser units come ready to paint and install. Note the clean gear wear pattern on the ring & pinion; this one should be a nice and quiet setup.
This is an all-new housing, and the axle ends are Tornio-style with big bearings and a bolt pattern to match our existing Wilwood brakes.
