I have the opportunity to buy an 8.8 rear end housing off of a friend for $100.00. I want to build it with a Posi Differential and 4.10 gears. I'm new at this, so I have no idea what parts or materials are needed to complete a task like this. Is there a list anyone could point me to a list that would outline everything needed to build an 8.8 Rear End?

Just to clarify. The bare housing is what I would be buying. It comes with nothing.

No gears or axles?

Correct. Just the Housing. Nothing in it or attached to it.

If you're looking for stock components, like axles, gears, and the differential, members here often sell good used ones.

The one thing in the empty case that I hope is still there are the differential bearing caps. Everything else can be (and often is) replaced.

A far as how to do it, you kind of should know what you're doing. There are several critical steps that must be done right in terms of measurements and clearances, in addition to torque specs. Find someone who can do it for you. I usually tell people what parts to get and then do the work with them or for them.

I kind of figured I'd be biting off more than I can chew by trying to undertake this all by myself. I appreciate your honesty.

Ben,

Unless you are a really great mechanic with years of experience in driveline and rear-ends I would not even consider doing this yourself.

It is one of those things that is either (Right or Wrong) !!!
