Ok guys I am looking to gather parts to assemble a bullet proof 8.8. Some of you may be familiar with what I have and I will be pushing 800-850 crank HP off the line and 1000 hp through the gears with the nitrous. I currently have a 8.8 rear end with strange axles with C clip elimantor and the stock trac loc posi unit and ford racing 373 gears. I hope it will last the summer as long as I do not tromp on it and I want to have all my parts ready to assemble my new rear end when winter gets here if it lasts that long :so. So what is the best items people are using in the 8.8s? IS detroit locker the best posi units or is there something I can get that has more bang for the buck? I also will be going to disc breaks when I redo the rear end so help there would be nice also. I have also heard that people weld the rear ends together to keep them from coming apart under heavy loads, anyone heard of this?
