The Strange Engineering 12 Bolt Rear..... when quality matters!
Strange Engineering's 12 bolt rear end for the 1982-1992 F-Body Camaro and Firebird replaces the weak 7.5" rear end
found in F-Body cars.
The Strange 12 bolt rear end features the following:
- Strange designed 12 bolt case with torque arm mount
- Premium nodular iron casting
- Heavy-duty Strange/Eaton 33 spline posi unit or your choice of a steel or aluminum spool
- Fully welded tubes
- Manufactured to "bolt-in"
- Chome-moly caps
- Optional aluminum rear cover
- Standard axle is 33 spline
- 1350 series pinion yoke with conversion u-joint supplied
- Large 3.150" housing ends - eliminating c-clip axles
Strange Engineering offers the strongest and easiest to install 12 bolt rear end in the industry. The Strange designed 12 bolt casting is poured from premium, highly ductile, nodular iron. The casting is machined with mated lightweight chrome-moly caps to exacting tolerances, using the latest Mazak machinery - ensuring an unyielding foundation that maximizes gear life and eases gear set installation.
What's in the set-up? Everything! Each rear end is meticulously assembled by a set-up department unsurpassed in the rear end market - the same department that fastidiously assembles $20,000 Top-Fuel rear ends.
We do not mass-produce rear ends. Each rear end receives the attention, regardless of time, needed to provide our customers with the best possible assembly. Every rear end component is relentlessly scrutinized by our experienced set-up department - including massaging each tooth of every gear set in order to optimize tooth contact.
Strange Engineering has been the leader in driveline and suspension for over 40 years by paying special attention to detail - the Strange 12 bolt rear end is no exception. The Strange rear end features 360* fully welded tubes, large 3.150" i.d. housing ends, 1350 series pinion yoke, conversion u-joint, and 33 spline axle shafts - at no extra charge!
Each fully set-up rear end with a posi unit is filled with gear oil and GM posi additive. Each rear end is fully crated to ensure the recipient of an uneventful delivery experience. The pride instilled into a Strange set-up is evident with the set-up technician's signature and date engraved into each ring gear.
1982-1992 F-Body rear drum and disc brakes are not compatible and can't be used. 1993-1997 F-Body and 1998-2002 F-Body rear disc brakes, Strange's 11" drum brake kit, and Wilwood rear disc brakes will install with no modifications.
Brake Notes: If you will be installing 1993-1997 F-Body rear disc brakes you must select the Strange billet aluminum backing plates from the option box. If you will be installing 1998-2002 F-Body rear disc brakes you can send the backing plates to Strange, or select to have Strange ship the rear with the bearings not installed on the axles so you can install the brakes yourself and then press the bearings onto the axles.
Shipping Notice: This rear end must ship by truck freight and is not eligible for free shipping. We will contact you for your approval of the truck freight shipping charge before processing your order. If you have any questions, feel free to email our sales team! Please allow 3-4 weeks for shipment after ordering as Strange rear ends are built to order.
