    Ohh wow. So much wrong in this sentence. I can prove otherwise (without slicks or being on a prepped track and a 100% stock engine) but that's okay. I believe it was around 1987 when all my friends took that pile of all of our wasted 7.5 axles to the recycle yard. Forget what we got for them. I wish we'd kept the slapper bars though. So much '80's cool right there. Good luck with your project. I see no reason to not refresh the 7.5 on a stock cruiser. Let us know how it goes.

    I have a 7.5 with 4.10’s out of my 85GT. It’s in my parts pile at Trey’s shop for now. I’ll most likely haul it home and eventually toss it when I get sick of tripping over it....

    Bad shoe productions makes some very detailed videos

    From axles to trans to EFI swaps

    Most how to videos skip steps bad shoe productions dives into great detail

    It will help you realize quickly if you can or can't tackle the rebuild

    I believe you can it's just a matter of buying the tools vs paying a shop to do it

    Pretty straightforward and now is the time to think about a gear swap

    Gear is by far the best bolt on upgrade that will make a difference for the money in my opinion
    7.5 or 8.8 is your call
