    Salisbury with lsd still worth a bit of money to the right person so coin would help fund a 9 inch which can be built as far as the wallet stretches…then you can beat on car relentlessly  as if Cav had borrowed it haha

    With salisbury/borgwarner diffs always felt no traction on street probably live forever…slicks & traction with big grunt start wondering how long lol.

     

    Not biggest fan of heavy chunky ass 9 inch but got to admit they take abuse easier than a punched kangaroo..

      One reason I went 12 bolt in mine (irs though), sort of the Chev 9″.  But the 9″ is tried and true that’s for sure.

    The older Sals is a bit different unfortunately, not as many bits available as the BW diffs.

    Talking to a mate who has run 10’s with a Salisbury, the spider gears are the weakest link, a full spool will amend the weakest link to the axles. If they survive the transbrake and slicks, the next thing to let go will be the cap bolts holding the centre in. The centre will be left lying on the ground as proof. There are no gear sets between 3.55:1 and 4.44:1 currently.

    With the current prices of VLT diffs at $1500(stock)-3000(tru-track, billet axles etc) depending on extent of mods, the logical option is to get a VN-VS diff (same diff but longer wheel to wheel) and have shortened to desired width or throw the 28 spline centre into a VL 6 housing with $895 billet axles thrown in. Gear sets can be had cheap in 3.9/4.11 etc from a Pintara.

    9 inch gives you the ultimate and choice and parts availability with good pricing on many components. Beware of dodgy welding, cut and resplined axles. Also be wary of pinion angles, especially with a lowered car and a one piece tailshaft. Many rub on the tunnel.

    Hey yip going t56 so tremec have decided to go 9″ Detroit would never put a spool in as I’ll be driving on the street a lot , I had a one piece shaft and 9″ in the vk with adjustable top arms so was able to adjust pinion angel ,

    as for axles went through two before I got a billet one made just on one side as other side was not modified
