    can you just take the cover off or do you have to drop the whole irs? i looked at the bolts and looks a bit tricky to get them all out,i have the bf irs brace and its pretty crowded back there

    Yea speacial thanks to cobracide on the lubelocker. I took his advice and couldn't be more pleased. The Ford cover looks nice almost as nice as the LPW:lol1:

    Man good luck with that cause its tight! I changed mine when we rebuilt the IRS.

    So can you use this cover instead of buying a brace?

    Well, technically it's not "proven" yet, so we don't know. Theoretically, however, that is the point of this type of mod...just like the LPW model.

    Gotcha, I haven't even opened the LPW box to took at the bolts yet, guess I'll order the ARP's as well even though I don't plan on ever having to go back in.

    So is the hardware on this good do you think? I heard about this 2 months ago at a Shelby Convention at VIR. FRPP used to make an IRS cover but they didnt sell enough back in the day, so they stopped production. Now they made another one, and well...here it is. Probably going to buy this one soon.

    FORDSVTPARTS"$;214.50, plus around $15-20ish for shipping. This one is not available right now :( the ETA as of this time is 8/30 from Ford Racing."

    Whats the difference from the LPW hardware VS ARP's hardware,.. stainless??? The LPW harware seemed to fit tight according to torque specs with sufficent threads.

    so the lpw cover comes with hardware its just not stainless/any good? I see the pro series comes with stainless hardware and black cover for more money, i was under the assumption that the regular lpw cover came with no hardware.

    It comes with general 6 point hardware. The arp bolts are 12 point stainless With a yield strength of 170,000 psi well worth the couple bucks while you have the rear out!!!!!

    So think $230 shipped, just like the LPW cover. Now the question is about the hardware...how good is it? Looks to be stainless, but is it strong?
