Thank you !

The rear end housing came from Detroit Speed (GearFX I believe)
Axles are Moser, from DSE
Center section is a Moser carrier, Currie "posi" , Yukon gears and Timken bearings, aluminum Daytona bearing support.

The gears are noisy and I hate them. I set them up with 7 thousanths backlash, so they are well within spec according to Yukon. Everything I have been reading lately, is that every aftermarket 9" gearset makes noise. I'm sure there are a few people out there that get lucky, but I am not one of them.

Love the car and fact that you daily drive it. That green color grows on me the more I see it. I plan on daily driving mine once I wrap a few things up, what size rear tire did you go with ?

Thank you. The car is British Racing Green, if you look closely, the hood and rear spoiler are Fathom Green, and are a shade or so lighter. I thought the car was fathom when I bought it... After looking through the enormous pile of receipts that were given to me, she had the dealership paint it BRG back in 69.

the tires are 335/30/18 in the rear

Thumbs up

I like the paint as is, this way you don't have to worry about it too much but I get it..........fresh paint of your liking really finishes off the vision you have.
Quick question about your Caltracs, I'm presuming you're using the low pro option. It looks like in one of your videos that the leaf spring brackets on the 9" are different from Caltracs one that came with their kit. Did you bolt up the Caltrac one that was trimmed under the DSE leaf spring bracket. Reason I ask is I have the DSE leaf brackets and want to add the caltracs to my leafs for better hookup. Tks & keep posting some updates along the way.

Thank you 😊

Yes, low profile Caltracs are what I知 running. The front brackets are as delivered from Caltracs, the rears, I cut / modified to work in conjunction with the DSE plates. I値l PM you pictures if you would like

Here is what I did. Just cut the shock mount portion of the Caltracs brackets, and trimmed them to fit inside the DSE plates. Very simple modification, works just fine and has been like this about 2 years now. The only thing I don稚 like about the bars, is the rattle they can create. The slop in the heims and the front bracket annoys me when I知 on rough road. It痴 not bad enough to remove them though. lol

Here's a possible cure for the rattling taken directly from the Caltrac website.
