welder Series info

Welder series in canada sells weld it your self hot rod and suspension parts and complete kits. They have lots of U tube video's and very good information on how to Install the M II suspension in their catalog and on line. I have a milling machine, lathe, Plasma, welders, etc and fab most of my own parts but there are some things that are easier and cheaper to buy considering the time to engineer and cut .

totally agree. there are lots of 8.8's in the wreckers. just a note of caution though. it has been said, not by me but by some knowledgeable differential builders online, that problems can be encountered with high horsepower engines using wrecker axles in this sort of configuration. they say that the axles get a "set" rotationally, and when they are installed in the wrong side, like when you use one from a wrecker that came out of the other side of the vehicle compared to what it will be placed into, they tend to break under high load. I have never heard of it, but then i don't travel in those high horsepower circles either. just a note for consideration. worse case scenario, buy a new aftermarket axle for that side.

I have some welders series stuff in the rear of my '57. it is really nicely patterned, cut and welded. you can save a few bucks by doing your own welding if you want. delivery is 10% of the cost of the item up to a maximum (to calgary anyway, not sure of out of country stuff). I would highly recommend them. check out the online catalogue. I had some questions and they got back to me right away by phone. i was impressed.

yea the guy we bought the first rear from didnt realize it was a 7.5 (niether did we until we looked at it the next day with some light) and he has a ton of mustang parts and we have been waiting for the next rear but we couldn't get a hold of him for a while ... finally he called the other day said his mom died and he we get the other to us by this weekend ... i have been keeping my eye out for 93-01 explorer as well as the width is close enough and they have the 31 spline 5lugs but i think 3.73 will be to high for a nice cruiser

explorer rear

the V 8 explorers are stronger, the best one for higher horsepower and have the internal drum emergency brake design, a better brake , just a little longer to do a brake job.

well we got a little more work done this weekend got the front end mostly asembeled and removed the back fenders and box and rear end ... might have to exchange our spindles for the drop spindles to get a little closer to the ground as we are a bit higher right now than we would like but we have the dummy motor sitting in the front right now and we cut a loop out of the springs that plus the weight from the transmission fluids water pump radiator alt.... should sit an inch or two lower than it is now so we will see

750 edlebrock carb going on just as it had when the motor was dynoed ... 431hp & 458tq by the time it gets to the wheels probably 350-375 which the 8.8 can handle no problem plus the 8.8 was easier to find and less expensive and has the "ears" on it already for the triangulated four link that we want to run

between snowmobiling, the holidays, waiting on parts and what not progress has slowed a little but we got started on the 4 link and started on the seat.... also has anyone switch out hinges for the doors on their rod? ours are not in good shape looks like they have just been blasted with crap for years, i was thinking to doo sucide doors with poppers but have never done anything like this and wouldn't know what kit to use as for the hinges the shaving and popper wouldnt be an issue but the hinges have me concerned
