Just wondering, has anyone here ditched the irs for a solid rear axle setup?? Other than guys that have done the tubbed maggies...
Im sure a bit of exhaust relocation and suspension mods would be necessary but, I think this would kick ass. Probably initially expensive to convert but in the long run (for the "quarter pounders" out there) would be more cost effective.
The reason I ask is....I'm a ford guy at heart and my previous car before my maggie was a 94 stang. I've become very familiar with the ford 8.8 and can build one on a very cheap budget. As apposed to spending $1000 + on just axles for the factory setup.
Hope someone has some info to share....
It wouls be tought to mount a solid axle under there b/c no front brace to attach it... the front of the rear wheel well is fuel tank... Paramount makes a 8.8 conversion for our cars. I'm running one with a detriot tru trac with 3.90 gears. I love it... kinda a duel purpose unit b/c u get all the bene's at the track and more importantly on the street.
