    Still looking for a complete rebuildable rear end. The carrier bearings were not installed properly and the races have spun into the housing.

    If I am not able to find one does anyone have a suggestion for a replacement?

    Thank you for any help.

    They show up occasionally on ebay. Any truck 8.8 will go in there, but of course the pumpkin will be a normal one, not the stiffer Lightning part.

    Thank you, I have been monitoring ebay and will continue too. I would like to find the stiffer lightning 8.8 if possible.

    Belts are for holding your pants up... not making horsepower.

    Sorry things have been very busy the last few weeks. Are you looking for a housing or a complete rear ?
    I have a Lightning housing no axles or diff. I was going to put 9 ends on it but I did a disc brake set up and desired not to use it.

    All that I need is the housing, everything else in my rear end is reusable. You will find my contact information in your private message inbox. I am very interested in working out the details as you have time.
