Are you looking for something stronger than the puny 7.5" 10-bolt that is stock, or just needing a posi unit for the stock rear axle??

There are only 2 rear ends that will fit your car. The small 7.5 10 bolt that came in almost all of the G body cars from '78 to '87, and the 8.5 that came in the turbo Grand National and T type Buicks and a few of the Olds 442s. There are no other bolt in rear ends for your car. The 8.5 is hard to find and very sought after by the G body people.

Your other option is a after market 12 bolt or 9 inch. Moser makes these, along with a few others. Prices for these start around $2100.

There's always the Lincoln locker. It's cheap depending on how desperate you are.

At least a spool- but even that on the street is verboten, IMHO. If it wasn't for innocent drivers sharing the road and it was just yourself, that might be a different matter. Then, you'd only tear yourself and your equipment up. But God forbid you take out a kid or something...
