Every build comes to a point where it’s time to take it to the next level. One area of the a project that will need an upgrade regardless of the application is the rearend. For most this is a walk through an enchanted forest where most of the terms you may not understand, but we talk to Currie Enterprises to get the low down on how to get started.
We had the chance to speak with Brian Shephard, and ask a couple questions on where to get started with building a custom rear end. When calling in to get your build started there are some basic information that they are looking for to help you get started. “Vehicle year, make and model, tire height (inches tall from the ground), horsepower, transmission type, overdrive percentage if applicable, and last, but not least intended application of the vehicle,” are some of the basics Currie needs to know said Shephard.
To a car guy that may have been the easy question, but the specs on exactly what needs to go inside may come as a foreign language. Shephard told us, “We have a sales staff of enthusiasts that work through each and ever build with every potential client to understand what they are building. They help get them the right equipment from our vast product line, without over or under building the unit.”
Any car enthusiast can appreciate someone on the other line that is as passionate about cars as they are. Stay tuned for more technical questions in a future articles. What are some questions you have when it comes time to building a new rearend? Tell us in the comments below.
