Pricing    

Others have used the term "Complete" to mean a variety of things. I'm going to do my best to list a "complete" Independent Rear Suspension and list the cost for all components as well as some other lower-priced alternatives. These alternatives will allow you to purchase items locally and reduce both initial cost as well as shipping costs.

A Complete Independent Rear Suspension System consists of the following:

Differential / Ring & Pinion  / Pumpkin - this is known by many names, but it is best described as the piece that the drive shaft and axles connects to.
Two Axles - including inner and outer CV Joints - specify track width, HP, vehicle weight
Coilover Shocks and Springs - size and spring rate to be determined on application
Two Lower Control Arms with poly bushings  - finished in customer's choice of Powder Coated colors.
Two Upper Control Arms with poly bushings - finished in customer's choice of Powder Coated colors.
Two Hub Carriers - finished in customer's choice of Powder Coated colors.
Two Wheel hub / bearing assemblies - specify bolt pattern - 5 on 4 3/4" or 5 on 4 1/2"
Center Section - this is the piece that mounts the differential and ties it all together.

Hardware - All necessary mounting hardware ( Nuts / bolts / etc... )

Now that a "complete suspension" has been defined, here is the pricing info for various stages of completion.


The total cost for the following  items ( excluding shipping ) listed below is $2700

Two Coilover Shocks ( non-adjustable QA1 ) and Coilover springs
Two Lower Control Arms with poly bushings  - finished in black Powder Coat
Two Upper Control Arms with poly bushings - finished in black Powder Coat
Two Hub Carriers ( spindles ) - finished in black Powder Coat - included
Two Wheel hub / bearing assemblies - 5 on 4 3/4" bolt pattern or 5 on 4 1/2" - included
All necessary mounting hardware ( Nuts / bolts / etc... ) - included



Differential
I can provide the Differential / Ring & Pinion  / Pumpkin for $400 Thunderbird style. I do not inventory the aluminum, Lincoln Mark 8 differentials, but I can usually locate them. I highly recommend purchasing a differential locally to save on shipping costs. 1989 - 97 Ford Thunderbird or the aluminum version from a Lincoln Mark 8


Axles
Two Axles - $250 / pair axle shafts only - made your your specified track width
Inner CV Joints - $100/pair
Outer CV Joint - $100 / pair

Total cost of Axles for lightweight, 250 hp or less vehicles - $450


Total cost of upgrade Axles - $750



Brakes
2 black, Wilwood Calipers - $135 each  - Wilwood p/n  120-6806
2 Rotors ( 2 piece with aluminum hats ) 11.75" diameter 5 on 4 3/4" or 5 on 4 1/2" bolt pattern $165 each (Rotors $35 + aluminum hats  $130)
1 Set of 4 brake pads $50


Total cost of Rear Brakes- $270  + $330 + $50 = $650 (3/8" mounting hardware is included)


The Grand total for all components making up a rear suspension is

$2700 - Fabricated suspension components
$ 400 - Rear differential
$  450 - Axles
$  650 - Rear Brakes
-------
$4200



This does not include shipping...  There is a $50 packing charge, since the center section must be mounted in a wooden frame... but no increase over what UPS charges for shipping. Also, brakes can be added at a later date to spread out the cost.
