i was wanting spool and c clip eliminaters, i found a rear end on ebay with all of for 175. It is 3 hours from my house. It has disc brakes on it but no spring pads. Can you look at it and see if is right for a camaro. It looks to have links for arms or soe other mounting way on it

the Most Important issue is width,are the axels with it,what housing is it 10-12 bolt or nine inch ford? If it isn't bent or anything that is a steal,spring pads are 20 bucks. sorry I don't want to type all that in to look(just Lazy) you can remove other mounts with a torch and grinder.

because we like you........OK I typed all that in but got nowhere I see in the title the words trk s-10. if that is what it came from its not what you want  the two wheel drive is to narrow and the 4-WD is too wide,so find the particulars out and let's look again,they may have a different housing in it and I could be wrong about trying to decode the info for download.

s-10 rears don't have trailing arm mounts

but the rest of the questions are very valid

what is the flange-to-flange width
do the axles come with it
what type is it...10-bolt, 12-bolt, 9"

AND most importantly
if it is a 10-bolt, what size...can you trust "i believe it's an 8.5 inch"...you DO NOT want a 7.5 10-bolt...i wouldn't trust someone else's best "guess"

looking at that seller's other items, he/she has a double-hump cross member from a Nova...could be a clue...email them and ask if they know what the rear came out of...year & model



p.s. i don't see s-10 in the title or anywhere else on the page

if you want to make a link,...click/copy/paste on the 4th symbol over.  it looks like a globe with a paperclip in front of it, when you reply.      i just took a quick look and it dont look like no 2nd gen camaro rear end.

If it's what you where told when you get there. It would be worth the trip. A set of gears are $200+ a spool $175. I'm sure you can find pieces for the brakes anywhere. Really look it over....

We ALL make mistakes.

Most of the time I have to look twice to make sure I'm seeing the information my brain is receiving.

i emailed him to measure it but he never got back to to me. not my luck for it to be right for my camaro anyways. I have 8.5 10 bolt, with 3.90 gear and posi unit, i want mini spool but was told i would brake it drag racing. So i need full spool then i guess i need c clip elim. I see moser axles has a kit with both axles and c clip elim for 439, that sounds kida high for oem axles dont it.

Jpatt87:

A definet no brainer. Even the good forged ones. They are brittle, and brake when least expected...I'll give you a little information on the difference, of Pro Gears versus street gears.

Street gears, the Rockwell hardness number would be higher, and the price cheaper. That does not mean the gears are junk Okay. The process to make them is completly different

Pro Gears, the Rockwell hardness number will be lower, the price much higher, the gears are softer and will flex more with the impact of a hard launch. Their life expectency is very short compaired to street gears.... from the same manufacturer.

One other thing if you ran Pro Gears on the street they would wear out so fast you would not have a chance to reset the back-lash...
