This just needs to last another 3-4 years until I have some custom ford 9" made
I went with twin stick on the D300 with a Detroit Locker in the D30. The front only can be put into neutral when needing to make a sharp turn (with hubs locked) - locker won't engage.
I understand the 9" thing and think it is a great choice. When I was building mine, I had access to D44's front and rear, D60's etc. Instead, I chose to become the "turd polish" king (its in my profile). I threw the "PS" comment in because there are people on the forum that trash anything about building the D30 and AMC20. It gets very old.
Like I wrote, you've done your research, and it seems pretty sound IMO
. Looking forward to your stroker build.
