Opinion On Diff

Mommy is going to give me a larger wad of lunch money and I have had my eye on the Gforce 9" Bolt-In IRS Rear for my girl and now have been comparing it to the DSS 9" Direct Bolt-in Rear. Seems to me that they are similar and for my needs it looks like either will work as it will be used more for autocross and the occasional 1/8th's and 1/4's. My question is, anyone here have hands on with both and can toss out pro's and con's? My biggest concern would be side loading and hard launches with off center weight transfer.

G-Force 9" is plenty strong.   Don't know about the DSS one.  If you are a daily driver I would concentrate on the differences in ease of installation, fitment and noise.

I have used both companies and prefer dss. dss has knowledgable employees and real tech support. That was not my experience with gforce. Budoboy is def right about that. Go with the one you feel will cause you least headaches

A heads up on either.  You will most likely have to modify your exhaust to fit under the new diff.  I had to relocate the mufflers on my MagnaFlow cat back, and had the same issue with a Corsa and DSS.

I've got the DSS bolt in. Nice kit, but did have to modify the Corsa exhaust. DSS also included the wrong length bolts so be prepared for a trip to the supply house for the right bolts. Of course, mine was one of the early bolt ins so maybe they've addressed that. Might want to grab a set of solid bushings from Erik while you are doing it.

Thanks folks, this is what I needed. While both systems are good I think it's the differences I was looking for and you provided it. The exhaust will be my one concern but I sure will make sure that all is in hand before I start.
