So you built the engine that’s going to earn you HOA complaints, excessive display of acceleration tickets, and miles upon miles of smiles every time you crack the taps open. You’ve got the car ready to accept this bullet. But have you stopped and given consideration to the other two points in your powertrain system? The transmission and the rear axle might be regarded by some as the fuse in the whole program…break one, just swap in another. We don’t know about you, but that doesn’t seem all that smart to us. If you’re going to go to the trouble of doing a complete build, why would you stack up wrecked transmissions and rear axles like cordwood?
Happily, there is a great option at the ready. If you’re the kind of person who strives to row their own gears and you want to bypass the trouble of one-leggers, 1970s-era fuel mileage gears that would be fantastic for Bonneville but suck out loud for day-to-day driving, or you’re concerned that the second you sidestep the clutch that you’ll polish the ring gear to a mirror finish, leaving chunks of teeth and glitter in the oil, American Powertrain and Yukon Gear & Axle can hook you up. American Powertrain is an official distributor for Yukon, so when you’re getting ready to plunk down on a five or six-speed that will hold up to the demands you’re going to ask of it, you can one-stop shop and prepare everything out back too. From overhaul kits to limited-slip units and more, if you need it American Powertrain can help you get what you need. So don’t just stop at a transmission that can take punishment, set up the rear axle to survive the fun too!
