The problem with just putting it in is that they all have rear disk brakes. Mine is drum in the back. I have heard different opinions all over the place about this swap. Would I need a new master cylinder? new proportioning valve? new ebrake lines? The other option is to just take my rear end out and have someone put in a posi. I would but I have never played iwth rear ends and don't have a shop press.
The 4th gen rear is wider by 4" overall and is a direct fit with NO WELDING. Just remove one and replace it For the switch from drum to disc's you will need the Proportioning valve and the Parking brake cables from the 4th gen rear.
