How do you change your 1988 samurai to a posi-trac rear end?
You can change the rear end of a 1988 Suzuki Samurai to Posi-trac by opening the differential and removing the existing ring and pinion gears. The Posi-trac assembly is then install and the gears put back in place.
A complete rear end? If so, any 70-81 Firebird, Trans Am or Camaro. Keep a couple things in mind. ALL Trans Ams were equipped with a positrac....but the Z28 may or may not be. Also, a lot of 79-81 Trans Ams will have disc brake rear ends. You'd need to change your master cylinder and proportioning valve if you don't have a disc brake rear now.
No, a solid is the relationship of the rear wheels with regard to the suspension. Independent is one alternative where each rear wheel can travel in the suspension independently. Positrac is a type of limited slip traction control in the differential passing torque to the rear wheel with the most traction as opposed to letting the wheel without traction spin. The alterntive is an open differentialk, torque applied to the wheel with least traction.
