I have a 78 malibu, and I want to put a rearend from a 86 - 88 Monte Carlo SS rearend. Will this work all G bodys swap out or do they. I want to know where I could find a SS rearend. I want to swap the entire assembly from drum to drum. Thanks

If you're trying to improve the strength, the MCSS rear isn't a very good choice. 83-84 Monte SS's (with NON od trans/3.42 gears) came with a 7.5" rear and 85-88 SS's (with od trans/3.73 gear) came with 7.625" rears.

You'd be better off looking for an 8.5" rear. They came in Buick Grand Nationals and T-Type sand Olds 442's from 1984 -1987 and some (but not all) '84 Hurst Olds.

Try www.gbodyparts.com and www.musclecarsalvage.net

There's Grand National rear end on eBay right now with a fair starting price (if it's a posi) GN rear on eBay click here .

They're occasionally for sale on www.turbobuick.com www.turbobuicks.com and www.t6p.com

Of course, if you're getting the MCSS rear for free or don't need the added strength, disregard all of the above!

Go for the GN rear much stronger than the MC!

I'm looking for one after I swap a LT1 in my SS!
