Time to tap more talent! I have a chance to get a 9" chunk w/ 3.83 gears. Don't know if it's a trac-loc or not. Is there a demand for this ratio? and what is it worth? It's in a truck w/ a 351W. Thanks!
You mean 3.89's? Sure, great ratio...perfect for modest street performance with a taller tire.
You can check for T-loc by jacking up one wheel, with the trans in neutral, and attempting to rotate it. If you can't rotate it by hand, most likely T-loc. Be careful on truck rears as it might be 31 spline..
Prices would go all the way from 50.00 for a 3.89 28 spline open to a few hundred for a 3.89 31 spline T-loc...note, that's what I'd pay...retail might be higher..

I know I need to set some small goals to get back on the success track.
Just saw this on ADAM 12 and figured it would be cool if someone here has this car.
