'57 210 4dr sedan 383/700R4
We have a 383/700R4 in front of the original 10-bolt 6-cyl rear end. So far the rear end is holding up pretty well but I'm afraid that if I ever really hammer it, the original rear end is going to call it quits. I'm wondering which rear ends others here have used and how well they've stood up to high torque (425-450 ft lbs?)? It isn't raced but is built for highway use. However, I also enjoy driving a vehicle which can handle freeway on-ramps with aplomb. What has been your experience with 12-bolts, 9" or 8.8" Fords? Inquiring minds want to know!
