Durability of a 10 bolt posi?
 
I am wondering if anyone can tell me the limitations a 10 GM posi with 4.10 gears has. I've just completed a 546 HP 486 lbs of torque 383 stroker and question if the rear end I have is going to be able to handle it. Any thoughts?

There are several 10 bolt rears. What do you have?

Its in a 91 GMC s-15 Stock rear end with posi carrier out of a 94 camaro z-28. 400 trans with 3800 stahl, 383 stroker with 546 hp

Not a chance. That rear end will blow apart pretty quick if you get any traction at all.

Thats kinda what I was thinking. I've got an opportunity to buy a narrowed 12 bolt with 33 spline Strange axles ...ladder bars...billet yoke... aluminum cover...4.88 Richmond gears... all new for 1250.00. Good deal?

Is it the right width for your truck? Do you want 4.88 gears? If it has a spool then it't not going to be worth a crap on the street. Ladder bars are noisy and stiff on the street. If it's what you want then the price isn't too bad. What are you going to do with the truck?

Mostly 1/4 mile passes...but a street cruise now and then

If thats a bolt on deal it seems pretty fair.

Us e traction bars for a street car. A lot of people dont know how to drive with ladder bars,they are not very forgiving if you chop the throttle at high speed,especially on slicks
