Over the last
40 years, millions of Chrysler, AMC, and Jeep vehicles have used these
differentials, propelling these high-performance vehicles to victory on
the street, in drag racing, and other applications. Chrysler used the
Dana 60 and BorgWarner Sure-Grip high-performance differentials in the
Challenger, Charger, Barracuda, Super Bee and many other renowned
Chrysler muscle cars. These differentials have been tied to historic
powerhouse engines, such as the Chrysler Magnum and Hemi V8s in stock
car, drag racing, and other forms of racing. Jeep CJs and Cherokees have
used the Dana 44 and AMC 20 and put these differentials under tremendous
loads, which often requires frequent rebuilds.
In this Workbench series title, the focus is on
the disassembly, inspection and step-by-step rebuild of the most
popular high-performance differentials. This book demystifies the
rebuilding process and explains it in detail. The Dana and AMC axles
should remain in wide use into the foreseeable future, and therefore
there will be a consistent demand for this information.
This book will also feature extensive gear and
application charts, so the reader is sure to select the correct gear
ratio for a particular vehicle and application. Special coverage is
therefore dedicated to ring and pinion gears. In addition selecting the
best aftermarket and production axle shafts is covered as well as
modifying and upgrading the differential housings.
Step-by-step disassembly, inspection, and reassembly procedures for many
popular Dana, BorgWarner and Chrysler differentials.
Borg Warner Sure-Grip and Dana 60 are some of
the most desirable high-performance differentials and are extensively
used in high-performance applications.
The Dana 44 is extensively used in the Jeep
models and off road Jeeps are especially hard on their driveline
equipment, making this book a very valuable resource.
