So I put the rearend in the 95ss tonight, it's no good. So I need to try again. I have a civi 94 lt1Car rearend, posi, 293 or something gear drum brakes. Can I assume the brakes from the SS and everything will fit? I have seen people talk about the swap over, but never done it.
If this doesn't work I'm gonna snap.

Thanks.

Yeah, the only 91+'s that have the 7.5 are the 2:56 cars.

Glen
You just pull the axles from both rear ends, but keep the axles with the rears they came with. Now just unbolt the backing plates and swap everything over. Very easy.

Does this apply to swapping the disc setup from a sedan axle to a wagon axle?

Back cover was covered in small pinholes, no oil in it at all. Everything in there was covered in dust and dirt. It's my own fault.
