Question 68 Camaro 10 bolt & 2000 truck limited slip

Nice board, dont know how I missed it before now. I have a 68 camaro with the stock 10 bolt. I aquired a stock 2000 truck limited slip (is it a gov lock???) from a 10 bolt. Since changing the rear axle is a ways off and spinning one tire is getting old, anyone know if this might drop in with my 2.73 gearing? I'm assuming the 2000 limited was under the carrier break but dont know any of the original specs.

Addendum: After a bit of searching I found I have an 8.2" ring gear with 28 spline axle shafts.

I dont have the 2000 in hand so I'm not sure of its specs - hoping someone can provide them. Can someone verify if its an 8.5" or 8.6" ring gear?

8.5" 10-bolt parts will not fit in an 8.2" rear end. Yours should fit '89 & newer 8.5" rears found in trucks & a few full-size cars.

Hi 68CaliCamaro!

I am almost in the same shoes. I just got off the phone talking to the shop that does the rear-end work. I have a 67 Camaro with 10 bolt, 8.2" 3.08 gears. To upgrade this to 3.73 10-bolt it would cost me about $650.00 (parts $200, labor $350, $100 something else). To add posi to this setup - $1050.

If I go hunting for a 1989 or newer truck rear-ends at junk yards, which model should I look for to get 3.73? Sorry for putting this question in your thread. I did some searching, the length of this setup should be 40".

Thanks!
Denis

You know, the 3.08 gearing is about what I was looking for. It's ideal for a 3 speed auto with a high stall that still sees a lot of daily driving. If a regear wasn't in your plans, there is a posi on ebay for a couple bills for your axle:

Thanks, 68, for the link. I _will_ be upgrading mine to 3.73. I found some brand new posi's for $330 new with free s&h from Co (no sales tax).
