PostSubject: Axle beef-up or new?   Sun May 03, 2015 7:52 am

Curious if the rear end in my 96 is worth cleaning up and beefing up or just go aftermarket or something out of another vehicle. Looking for not much work involved type of stuff but if needed I'll get it done. And did a little hunting but not to much, nothing really on performance rear-ends I could find for a 96. When all is said and done I'm shooting 475ish-500hp to the wheels.

Ofcourse frame and stability mods will be done also.

And tire width also. Would like to get another atleast 2-3 inches of meat on the ground widthwise. With that can I get away with just a tub if needed and work the fenders if needed or would the rearend need to be shortened?
