9" code k rear end
#1
Hey everyone just wondering if the factory trac lock diff is any good. I just got a quote for $2000 to have the diff re built new gears,bearings,seals and have a new posi installed, i dont want to be ripped off kinda seems steep. Also iam looking for some new gears 3.73 and i cant find them or dont know where to buy good ones. I know i could re build it myself (bearsings seals) just not sure about the gears and track lock.
Thanks for the help

If it was me, I would not spend that kind of money for a rebuild when you can probably order a complete crate built to your specifications from one of the major manufacturers such as the one in this link.

that is WAY too expensive. the raw materials for a ground up rebuild on a ford 9" with a new traction lock is under 900$ any competent shop should have maybe 6 hours into it at 30$ an hour, which would put you just into the 1000$ range.

please read through my tutorial on the ford 9"

this will give you an idea of what is involved and in part 1 at the bottom I go into costs involved and approximate what a shop might charge.

2000$ is way too much for just a rebuild or rebuild with a traction lock replacement get another quote from a different shop.

for 1000-2000$ you can get a ready to bolt in bran new 3rd member and axle depending on options, for 1000$ you could get a ready to bolt in 3rd member itself, for 3000$ you can get a ready to bolt in ford 9" axle and 3rd member complete with rear disc brake conversion.

I was charged $650 to convert my original (9" 2.75 open) diff to 3.50 traction loc by a local racing shop. I got all new components except for the case.

I got a complete rebuilt third member with 3.89 and trak-loc from BILL THOMAS ENTERPRISES for around $900.00. And I didn't have to provide a core.

My mustang is named Beth.

As in

Beth I hear you calling and I'll fix you right this time.
but both the kids need braces and I just can't spare a dime.
Just a few more paychecks and I'll get right back to you.
Oh Beth what can I do? Beth what can I do?
