Looking for advice on 72 rear end. I have the stock setup currently. I would like to have a deeper dish rim in the back, along with four wheel disc setup, posi and possibly touring setup. Im a novice doing the work myself. What are some good options without breaking the bank?

Some places like Jegs, and Summit sell complete rear ends but can be very pricey. But alot of people end up swapping diffs out for different reasons. Stopped racing , switching to highway gears for road trips etc.
I found a complete read end for my Malibu, drum to drum, trailing arms included drop in and got for $200 with all new guts, bearings, hardened axles and new gears. But I knew the guy which helped.
If you go used, pull diff cover off and inspect and at the very least change the fluid if going used.
Best of luck

First question is do you know how much deeper you are looking to go? 1" per side? 2" per side? There are some good swaps out there if you know what width you are looking for.
