Eaton posi springs?

Post by Damon » Sun Nov 10, 2019 10:39 pm

Was out at Atco today running my buddie's 9 second turbo blow-thru Mali. We turned up the wick just a bit (more boost), it dead-hooked and pulled the front wheels about 4-5" off the ground and would probably have pulled them up even more except..... crunch!

Thought initially it snapped an axle, but no. It shattered the spider gears out of the Eaton posi (12 bolt GM rear). Such is racing.

Spider gears I got laying around. BUT.... the shattered remains of the spiders took out several of the Eaton's posi pre-load springs. Mangled a couple of them pretty bad. These springs I don't got.

Anybody sell these things for reasonable money? I just need a set of springs.
78 'Amana White' Malibu- My grandmother's go-to-church car with 35K original miles. Out with the smogger 2bbl 305. In with a really mild 383 topped with ancient AFR heads, Summit's finest K1103 house brand flat tappet cam, a Weiand 142 "underhood" blower and a home-brew QJet. GN rear, DRs. 11.85 @ 116. Nitrous coming.
