Gears or 9C1 rear end wanted.

Hi there; I am in the market for a set of 3.08 or 2.93 gears with the reluctor gear for 95 caprice wagon, or maybe a 9C1 complete rear housing. I am in east Tn. 931-261-2970. Thanks for taking the time. Mike.

swapping a sedan rear into a wagon can be done but not a good thing,there narrower,spring perches are off set,axle bearings smaller, what is the problem with existing rear

Hi; I know that from the forum, I would just use the gears and the disc brakes if that swap is possible. Thanks.

The rear discs are an issue due to the larger axle bearings on the wagon. My understanding is it complicates mounting the disc backing plate and brackets.

check this out.. 95 disc brakes, im planning to do this to my 92 wagon if i should come across a complete rear, but there like hens teeth around here, there is machining to do like mention cause of the axle bearing size, i figure to to throw in a eaton tru trac and maybe 342 or 373's gears but b4 i do that ill need to find the reluctor which are hard to find and the proper speedo gear,i want everything in place b4 i do anything,remember too when going to a 342/73 u may need to rebalance the drive shaft, but not so much for 308's as for the debate over using the original proportioning valve for drums or using one from a disc ,well to me its try it and see, i swapped a disc rear into my 91 but also took the mc and p/vlv from the donor car (keep that in mind when your looking) and the drive shaft

biggest factor is how much ambition ill have when the time comes lol

That looks like the rotor and the wheel are no longer hub centric. I know some wheels aren't but frankly for the long term use of daily driver use I would rather see them hub centric. For racing or the like there is the argument of a lot of load and it being "ok" but for the street the parts wont be R&R'd and therefore checked for tightness and such anywhere near as often.

I would not be comfortable with that atall.

I know navylifer was working on a kit and I have every confidence in him making something nice.

Really though after having 9.5" drums, 11" drums and now an unmodified disc system in my sedan I will say the rear disc thing is NOT as wonderful a thing as people assume. I still need to do the stealth bolt mod, but really IMO the front brakes need attention before even swapping to disc rear.

For single daily driver use I don't think drilled or slotted will hurt pedal feel or performance. Just going to wear out pads faster mostly and the rotors will crack sooner but the rear does so little work with the stock prop valve(same as drum) that you wont see either problem and even on front if your use is light those issues would take time to show themselves.
