hey just a quick note...3.08-3.70 uses the same case and the 4.11 on up has a different case. Otherwise depending on your current ratio you may need a ring gear spacer.

Richmond gear has most all you need.

this is probably the best place for the parts you need.

Hi,
I just bought an axle bearing through Drake Restoration-on line.
They have lots of parts for 55-64 Chevy rears.
