Re: rear end gear help??? cant find any

Good luck trying to find gear sets for the BW 9-bolt. Very few are avaiable, with a 3:70/3:73 ratios being the lowest.

Re: rear end gear help??? cant find any

I have the same rear. I'm planning to find a 4th gen rear with a 3.42 gear. It'll swap right in and the pics I've seen of the width difference is barely noticeable unless you know or know enough about 3rd gens to see it.

You could try Summit Racing. You might pay more for new stuff, but chances are they have what you want.

Re: rear end gear help??? cant find any

I haven't been on the site for quite a while but when I was looking I found that ringpinion.com also had a lot of stuff for our BW 7.75" rear.

Here is a set of 3.73's for it. Sorry for posting in an old post ha.
