I just got it basic, new 4.88s. I re-used my shafts, knuckles and brakes. I put new ball joints in from Crown Automotive.

Didn't have the extra cash for a locker, but I will do that down the road.

Thanks, the exhaust sounds even better in person. I have a few more updated videos, but you tube wont let me upload them.

sry to crash the thread, but does anyone have any experience/opinion on a Cherry Bomb Glass Pack compared to the flowmaster 40? i have an 18" Cherry Bomb now and was thinking about changing to flow but would want it to be atleast as loud as the cherry bomb.

I have herd the cherry bomb glass back and IMO, it doesn't compare to flowmaster. Go to the first page of this tread and listen to my video.

Was your angle too high on the 8.8? Mine was and I had to adjust the bottom arms out on my RC LA kit. Think I got it just about right now. The top arms were almost bottomed out from the original install of the kit. I was hearing a little popping when starting out from the rear u-joint and maybe a little vibration, too. No more noises and seems very smooth driving now. Already had SYE and new drive shaft. Just needed some adjustment.

I have fixed lower arms, everything lined up great. I had bad vibrations before at 65mph, very smooth now no vibes.
