Slap that boat anchor 9" in there and watch your ET's soar.

After getting back from your chiropractor's office from messing with that thing.

sure, the 200lb stick out back will be a good offset to the 70/30 weight distribution with a turbo cast iron v8! 2019: the year of the 4000lb 242.

Gotta be there the day they set them in the junkyard though, because the Mexican guys pull the axles and grab those pumpkins right away.

I should get a shop hoist scale and see what the real difference is between the alu 5.3/CD009 and the redblock turbo/T5 combo.

Just roughly eyeballing the front suspension ride height, the V8 isn't heavier. Not all the parts are in it yet, though.

I know man!

There is some guys around here that are always right on them.

I remember two winters ago, some V6 4runner arrived at the PnP in the middle of the winter right after 30cm of snow.

The place opens at 9am and I was there around 9:30/45.

Well the bastard came before me, dug in the snow and removed the pumkin.
Fawk!

I have two complete assemblys now (one on the car and one spare).

...and of course, since I don't need any now, there is a million Toyta whatevers showing up in junkyards.

You're a braver / more determined man than I am, a little rain chases me out of the junkyards.

To be honest, it's not really a matter of choice.

This, all the way, I think I even prefer the winter to really warm summer days when you just end up covered with grease and sweat.

Not any junkyards round here, I haven't seen a 240 in 8 months. I also want at least the 3.91, 4.10 would be better for the diameter tires I'm using.

Edit: I've also broken a 1031 as well, need to be moving ahead not running in place.

A Ford 9" isn't really that heavy, I got mine out of the truck myself (dam heavy for 1 guy) the axles weren't in it but the 3rd member was... how much do these other rears weigh?

Very close to 200# for the 9" @ 46# less for the 8.8 depending on rear brake type.

If I'm already stripping a 240 and starts to pour down, I just keep going. At least there isn't anyone to bother me when it's raining. I'm always ready with a rain coat/pants. When it gets cold I put on some thermals and I'm good to go.

If anyone of you want a 8.8 in your volvo. Let me know I have a jig for welding the mounts. I can source axles no problem. It isn't going to be dirt cheap. But I have the tooling and time for the next month to do it. Pm for deets

Search of 1 yard that's open on Sundays only turned up 3.73lsd 8.8, there was a Toyota pickup with their 7.5" diff, there was also a 4runner with I think a 4.56 4 shaft that I looked real hard at until I went back and read Vinny's write up again. I'm going to try the other yard possibly today but I may be stuck with the 3.73.

Other pick and pull had what I wanted, swapped the extra short axle in the housing out the door for $177 including tax and $10 core charge that I'll get back if I bring old brokey in. D2 4.10 trac-lock. I gave up on the yoke, I'll either order one in or go back for it, I did get an extra rh brake hose. 165k on the axle, should I replace the guts of the lsd? That thing is ridiculously heavy in a wheelbarrow with 65lbs. of tools, the tire was rubbing on the wheelbarrow body.

That’s an 8”, not a 9”.
Let me guess, you could use a socket on all the nuts, right?
On a 9” you can’t get a socket on one bottom nut.
