Do I need a NASCAR pinion support in my 9"???


Got a question: Do I need a steel NASCAR pinion support in my 9" Ford rear axle? The car is a 68 Camaro, about 3300 lbs, SBC 406, about 500HP, T-56 6 speed, 5.00 gears, Mickey Thompson ET Street Radials (325/50).

The car launches pretty good but not extremely hard. I am heard others here saying that the pinion support in the 9" is the weak link. Is this true? I was told when I put this axle under my car that I would have a real hard time blowing it up.

I need new gears and bearings in this thing anyway, and just thought I should upgrade if that's what is necessary.

Thanks for any info.

I think they are GREAT insurance ...
Look at the difference in the width of the bearing.

I always use them on my 32's ... and my cars are light ( 2200 to 2400 pounds ) and are on street tires MOST of the time ...
