Who build ford 9inch for the 03 mustangs? I found that currie has the housing for 590.00 i figured about 1100.00 to do a 9 inch and it will prolly be just as high to build the 8.8... any info
Ill see if I can find any on my compy since my phone constantly effs up.Ive been running the stock rear end nothing. Im hitting the strip up next year so i need a rear end under it!! i figured if i went with the 8.8 im going with a eaton 31 spline axles but then i would need to do some bracing to the rear and as well. but i think i added up one day it was under 1100.00 to build my current 8.8... so if i was to buy the bracing needed for the 8.8 id say i would have around 2000.00 in my 8.8 . You got any pics of the moser unit u installed?
The Strange housing has the notches for the upper ears. Here's my setup. You can see where the mounting ears for the UPR upper control arms are notched into the housing.If you do a 9 inch, be very careful which housing you choose. You actually have to cut into the housing for the upper control arm mounts to maintain correct suspension geometry. I have installed a moser M9 housing into a 2001 Cobra, and although it was a nice piece it did not have the correct suspension geometry. This is especially true on the housings that have the large fabricated centers.
My Strange 9" was a direct bolt-in with the UPR suspension, but keep in mind that we make upper control arms and spherical bearings that are specific to either the 8.8" or the 9".sharad and crazy stang did u half to do any modifying to get the uppers to work? or was it good to go? also if u do not care of me asking how much was the moser and the strange setups with the gears the whole nine yards?
I think that's an old generalization. The 9" in my car does not even remotely resemble an OEM 9". I know its bearings are nothing like the OEM bearings. It seems to spin fairly freely, however, I would have chosen this rear even if it used a few more hp. By the time you brace & reinforce an 8.8 enough to live in an application like mine, you have as much money and more work in it that you would have in a Strange 9. I watched Chris Tuten run 7.20 @ 200+ on an 8.8... but it was also leaking oil at the center section. No bueno.And as far as a power loss to the wheels from the 9" I think its minimal because I can still spin street tires half way through second gear with no problem.
