hey, thanks alot for the reply. I found out that the 8.5 out of my 81 camaro is in fact wider over all and the springs didn't line up on the mounts. I tryed switching the gears but the whole bearing assembly on the pinion gear was larger on the 8.5". It looked like the ring gear assembly would fit in but I didn't try because of the pinion gear. Im going to go ahead and get the 8.2 housing welded and hopefully it will work. Thank you very much for the reply.
