    That a 12 bolt out of a car is stronger than one out of a truck. I read it in Car Craft so it must be true. The cars is actually bigger. HMMMMPH

    Like to go sloppin' 'round in da mud in a rapid fashion....=)

    Yep! Another one of those go fiure things?!?!?!?! Dosent make a damn bit of since to me other than the fact that alot of the cars had alot more power. (i.e. all the muscle cars: novas, chevells, camaros, etc.)

    Yeah, Kinda odd that they'd do that.

    Slighly related note.
    Buddy of mine had a '72 Chevelle (car 12-bolt with a 4-link) and spun the left rear tube in the houseing off the line (drag-car). He was able to rotate the tube back into postion and welded up the tube to the houseing. That repair has lasted, and is still in use.

    yup one of the amazing, but true facts. But since Chevy 12B's for cars are become so scarce/expensive up here I usually lean towards the Ford 9 for my cars.

    In what way is it stronger? I'd like to know, just in case I ever need to replace mine, I'll know what to look for.

    Larger ring-gear I believe. But I have a feeling that it would be hard to fine one that would be a bolt-on for a truck, and they were 5-lug. If you're going to replace yours, it would be easier and better to go with the 14 bolt.
