    I need a different rear end for my Alger, the 3:89 is way to steep!!
    Any suggestions?

    If you are running an alpine rear in a v8 powered car be very careful... Easy to brake the axles amd axle keys.. Also the diff isnt designed for that torqur.

    Switch to a tiger rear... Much stronger amd a direct bolt in mounting wise assume you have a modified tail shaft?

    Other options are ford 8 or 9"

    Yes the stock rear ends aren’t made for a V8 .
    Looks like I found a Tiger rear end and this will complete this build and car will be for sale ASAP.
    Because I have a Tiger that I’ve owned for 50 years and have been doing some up grades like Paint and new engine upgrade!
