215 to 226 upgrade.
As it states, Saturday I'll be removing my f'd up 215mm rear and going with the ubiquitous 226mm Getrag. I'm also going from a 3.06 gear to a 3.91 gear.

My rear arrived today.....wait that sounded bad. Laugh

Hopef ully it goes smoothly. The last rear I did was swapping a Dana in a friends C harger. That was a few pounds and a healthier back ago. Laugh

Anybody know what the size of the bolt is that holds the differential on the crossmember is? I want to make sure I have what I need to knock this out with minimal trips to the store during the process.

RE: 215 to 226 upgrade.
You bought a bolt and cut it or a socket and cut it?

Anything else I need to be aware of? it seems to be fairly straight forward. I'll figure out the driveshaft bolts, unless there is any trick to it, but it looks fairly simple.

RE: 215 to 226 upgrade.
Do you have stock axles? It helps a lot to drop exhaust but is not absolutely necessary (at least with DSS axles). Be really really careful re-installing axles into the Diff. I put the smallest nick in the seal and it leaked (needed a magnifying glass to see it).

RE: 215 to 226 upgrade.
Yes, stock axles. I was considering dropping the exhaust....mine is welded together, so it would be the entire system aft of the headers, PIA, but it sure would give me more room. Thanks for that tip Craig. I'll need the upgraded axles soon enough. That is a benefit of the 226 rear...choices are more (2) and cost is less than the only choice for upgraded 215 axles.

RE: 215 to 226 upgrade.
With stock axles I am pretty sure you will need to drop the exhaust unless you pull the axles out by dropping the rear knuckles which I would not recommend.

RE: 215 to 226 upgrade.
Thanks Craig, I was already considering it, so I can just go ahead and plan on it.

I was considering not even removing the axles on the 215 and just dropping the the whole thing, or will that not work?
