Here's a video of the Snake Eater blowing the stock 10-Bolt rear in front of the shop on a 1-2 shift....
The spiders had let go and tore up the inside of the carrier...
This was the 2nd 10-Bolt on the 5th rebuild...

Enjoy the breakage.
2001 Formula Stock motor doing wheelie
Took my 2001 Formula to the track, its got an SS4000 converter, QA1
Suspension, and 3.73 gears. I broke two 10 bolts in 2 weeks, so I put a
Moser 12 bolt in it. Suspensions is set up amazing, and for a stock motor,
stock manifolds and stock cats, its running very well, and pulling the
tire(s?) about 5" for 8 ft or so.
How to install or change or replace gears and bearings in a rear end or differential
Installation of carrier bearings, pinion bearings, ring and pinion and a
crush sleeve are covered in this video. The main tricks given in the video
are about the actual set up bearings. The rear end being worked on is a
8.5 inch gm 10 bolt out of a second generation f body. Tooth contact
pattern charts are available on the internet, do your own research.
