Pulled the rear end out of the nova tonight to get the gear set done. what i found was this...... I have no idea why it was so fucking loud other then it must be how it was set up the gears looked fine and there was no damage at all..... oh and they were not 4.56's they were actually 4.86's

9 inches are not all loud LOL whoever told you that is full of shit. Mine is very quiet. And how many trucks have you guys heard going down the road whining?

With that said this set of gears I have now are Yukons.

That's true. It's not a "nine inch thing" at all. Good to see you'll be able to actually drive it places now Steve. I miss my 69. I gotta see it when I get back.

Richmonds are loud as hell no matter what style of rearend you have.

Yukon and Strange seem to be strong and quit.

oh it gets worse sounds like the retard that was inthere was grinding on this and that and the locker is not a real locker but one fo those that you pull out the spiders and put in. sounds like with all the grinding that was done im going to have to buy a whole new center caps are fucked. so now do i put a spool in? not ideal for street use...... or do i spend big money and put in a GOOD center in it?

I'm all for spending the money and being done with it. I mean why buy something that gets you by, when you know eventually you'll replace it anyway. Plus if you get it set up right your down with it, no more worries.
