All too often, when an enthusiast builds a high performance engine, swaps a more powerful engine into a car, or mounts sticky tires, the driveline components simply can't handle the added torque and fail. In addition, the differential, axles, and driveline parts have a limited life span under the power of a high performance engine. Also, the proper gear ratios need to be selected and installed for maximum performance on the street, strip, or track. The performance of the driveshaft, differential, axle, and other driveline components needs to match the performance level of a particular engine so that maximum efficiency, longevity, and reliability can be realized. SA Design's High-Performance Differentials, Axles & Drivelines covers everything you need to know about selecting the most desirable gear ratio, rebuilding differentials and other driveline components, and most importantly, matching the correct driveline components to engine power output. Learn how to set up a limited-slip differential, install high performance axle shafts, swap out differential gears, and select the best available products for the driveline. This book covers the Chevy 12-bolt, Ford 8.8 in., Dana units, and many other popular high performance axles and rear-ends. In addition, it explains rear differential basics, rear differential housings, and rebuilding open rear, limited-slip, and factory differentials. Ring and pinion gears, axle housings, axle shafts, driveshafts, and U-joints are also covered.
