80’s Firebird rear end, 5 lug(bolt pattern same as MGC 5 lug), disc brakes, limited slip, “3:3/1 I think”, and mounts to fit rubber bumper MGB (this may be the same as the chrome bumper?). The brakes will need a proportioning valve in line when you set up the new lines. $1200

Not sure how I miss measured, my flat edge may have been on a stud. Wheel mating surface to wheel mating surface is 50.5".
3 and 1/4 turns of the driveshaft to turn the wheel.
It is a 10 bolt rear end, I am going to try to identify whether it is a 8.2 or 8.5...

It has a torque are mount which means it from a 3rd gen F-body 82-92 . It's a 7.5" 10 bolt .

This appears to be really good deal for someone, distance was too far for me too snag it . I was on the fence regarding buying a Quaife when I took serious look at this, but in the end, for me, the Quaife won out.

Feel free to make an offer, I can use this on my car and it would be sort of cool, but I don't really need it.

I can ship this on a pallet, judging from past experience it would probably be in the ballpark of $300 going out to either coast hub to hub. Disc brakes, lsd, and a rear end that can handle the abuse that most V8 or V6 builds can throw at it. This was intended to be used in a car with a v8 pushing out 300hp, the projected was abandoned when my father-in-law passed away.

I am selling this to help offset the cost of sending a really nice b motor to a shop to be assembled so I can drop that in my car. Someone with a nice v6-or v8 project needs this more than I do.

Sure that is a 7.5". My LT1 Firebird has 8.5. And it is limited slip? What part of MO are you in?

Thanks, Mike

Oh, that was someone else that thought it was a 7.5.. I think he is wrong, but I am more of a Ford guy so who knows...?

Nothing wrong with my original axle IDT, but would suspect shipping to 55069 zip would probably not be anywhere close to $300. What is your zip?

Thanks,

Mike

I am in University City, 63132
It has limited slip, I know it was out of a late 80's firebird.

Still available. PM me if you need specific information, such as numbers stamped on the housing or need something measured, calculated...
