Don't know what kind of money your looking to spend but I took a 9-inch Ford rear with an open diff. and highway gears and bought everything I needed from <a href="http://www.reiderracing.com" target="_blank">www.reiderracing.com</a> and converted it to a 3.70 posi. They sell all kinds of choices for differencials, gears, etc. I called their tech support and told them what I had and what I wanted and they set me up with everything needed right down to the new pinion nut. If you're planning on buying gears anyway I would price out a new differential too. Even if you got one from the junk yard you would want to overhaul it with new clutches anyway. Just an idea.

those posi units are fairly rare and there are some tricky revisions done during the years that can really be frustrating, if your going to spend the money to rebuild after purchase why not buy an aftermarkt posi like an auburn? better quality piece to start with, just a little more money (maybe) and a lot less time involved, don't try to change it yourself unless you have experiance and the correct tools and about 5 lbs of assorted shims and spacers.

Thanks guys for the info. I was leaning toward new or aftermarket. I think to save time and aggravation, as well money in the long run, I'll go with the new stuff. Thanks for the input.
