Sorry bud but it wont work..Kinda stinks because the GN guys want big bucks for a rearfrom a car thats over 12 years old and has more than likely been beat to hell..

I ran through 9 7.5s in one summer with my 11 sec LT1 malibu..Best advice to you is to sorce a moser rear with axles and then get the brakes and 3rd member from a local pulla part junkyard and run that till cash allows further upgrades..Just look under damn near any older van or ford truck..If you get lucky and find a 78-79 F250 with a 9" then you have a detroit locker and probally 4.10s..
