  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

I am close to ordering the rear end complete from QP.
https://www.quickperformance.com/9-F...2_p_20386.html

One of my questions is about the disk brake upgrade.
Specifically this option, Wilwood Dynalite 12.19" Disc With Shoe Style Park Brake [+$450.00]

Has any one here went this route?
I haven't contacted them yet. I want to know how well it works and if it is worth it.
Did you have to change the prop valve?
I have factory disc's in front now with factory rear drums. They work fine for me but if it stops better then why not I guess.

Second question is the posi options.
We drive our car a lot. 10k plus a summer.(before we got our Labrador,she's calming down so hopefully we can take her with us) With some weekends at a 1/8th mile track with a lot of hot lapping. I also plan on running a couple 1/4 mile tracks this summer.
With that in mind I am thinking this is the way to go 31 Spline Eaton Truetrac Posi [+$125.00]

JD race built the current 8.2 out of a 68 GTO that I will be replacing. Nothing wrong with it but I plan on a cross country trip this summer and if I have any issues I think I can find parts for the 9inch easier if I had a problem on the road. I am also looking to put some sticky slicks on the rear for the track days.

Opinions welcomed
Thanks Joe

Nice Option I believe. I know I've considered doing the same and very much for the same  reasons. I currently have a 8.2 posi Cone unit that I have a set of 3:23 gears for. I had a second backup set,but someone needed a set so I  sold the extras(3:23's in good shape hard to find and no longer available). I hope to put some driving on the car once complete and as you stated....easier to get parts and do repair on the 9" if need be. Plus the option of gears as my 8.2 can only handle the 3:23 as  max option. I hope you draw input of the rear brake option as well. On your prop valve....I'm planning to use the wildwood adjustable. Anxious to know how you like it if you do the change. I'm tempted to sell my 10" 8.2 setup just to get the 9inch!

Joe's Tech Support Here with more pictures from Joe.....he went to Inline Tube yesterday and they could NOT help him. However, he found a shop nearby that could. It cost him $95 a cable but he now has functional emergency brake cables for his 9-inch.

Well at least when Joe gets to the end of a run he’s got backup!

Why does that sounds like "someone to push"?

Notallthere kept looking at his wife saying "Yeah but Joe's rear end is nine inches". She kept on saying back to him, "Yeah, uh huh, I know this routine. You're cute but the answer is still no."

Somehow "cute" and Notallthere don't belong in the same sentence, in my book, anyway.

Justa got off the phone with Joe. He's having more technical issues. This time the axles don't want to install properly. He's ready to start cursing and using bad words! :badGT:

 

Good news is he may join me at Lingenfelters on Saturday.

Got a text update from Joe last night. The axles are now in - it was an ID-10-T error.

Something about a small retainer that has to goes inside the new disc caliper brackets.....

I've been promised pictures.

Using the creeper made moving the rear end around a lot easier.
