No, only the 8.8" and the Sterling 10.25/10.5" and some models of Dana 70/80 have VSS. It is a toothed ring on the differental carrier (next to the ring gear) mated with a sensor that mounts to the outside of the differental. The 8.8" will have an 108 tooth tone ring and the 10.25/10.5" will have a 120 tooth tone ring. None of the 9" rear ends have this tone ring/sensor combination. There are several web sites that show how one might rig up an external sensor but I would forget that option. There is not enough of a strength difference between the 8.8" and the 9" to consider swapping a 9" in. If you need stronger get yourself a nice D-70 for better ground clearance or source a Sterling 10.25/10.5 AKA the rock catcher.dkaska said:Just curious. How exaclty does a VSS work?
There's been alot of 9" swaps going on, on FSB. I considering, for the hell of it to do the swap also (excuse to get druck & dirty). Are nine inchers available with VSS?
What year Bronco do you own?dkaska said:Thanks Dangling.
My thinkin was, theres a pakistani guy next door at work whos got salvage vehicles. 9" R&P and lockers are resonably(sp) priced. Got a neighbor who has set up tools and is familiar with gears. So I thought why not take my time build up a 9" with gears, locker and possibly discs.
Is it pretty involoved to switch a manual spedo.
All the F250s have them. Its actually the exact same axle thats in the F350 SRW. And 2 or 4 wheel drive doesn't matter, with the F250 or F350Dangling_Dave said:If you go with a 10.25 you can source one off of a 1985-86 and up F-350 2wd truck. You might even find one under a F-250.
With the ODBC-II computer in your '96 you MUST have the VSS. BTW I have a '96 as well.
