Proform Parts’ All New 8.75 Pinion Snubbers


Traction is the Holy Grail of every racer. It’s not enough to have 700-horsepower under the hood. Somehow, that piston-driven push has to get to the ground without going up in a cloud of smoke and taillights. Axle wrap can leave you on the losing end, but a pinion snubber can help. Ma Mopar knew the wonders a snubber could work and even offered it as standard equipment on high-performance cars. Unfortunately, the factory piece was non-adjustable; as soon as taller tires or shackles were installed, it was basically rendered useless.

Proform Parts, however, offers a few different versions to fit whatever your application may be. The first is a pin-type snubber (#68082) that is adjustable to three different heights via clevis pin. If you’d like more finite adjustment, a screw-in type (#68083) is also available. Either one will provide the ability to precisely tune your snubber based on track conditions, tires, or suspension setup. A screw-in type is also available for those running a Dana 60 (#68081). All are made from steel and finished in a gloss black oxide coating.

The gap between the snubber and the floor will vary depending on the application. Race cars may tend to run it 1” or closer while street cars may keep it 3” or 4” away so it doesn’t bottom out with a trunk full of groceries. Test and tune to see what works best for you.

Kent grew up in the shop with his old man and his '70 Charger R/T. His first car was a 1969 Super Bee project when Kent was fourteen. That restoration experience lead to pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering and a career in manufacturing. Since then, the garage has expanded to include a '67 Satellite, a '72 Scamp, and a 2010 Mopar '10 Challenger.
