What exactly are you looking to find out about it?? Your question is not very specific.

7.5" 10-bolt. Check the glove box or under the trunk lid for the option code list. Rear end ratios start with G.

G72-2.14 ratio
GH2-2.29 ratio
GU1-2.41 ratio
GM8-2.56 ratio
GU2-2.73 ratio
GU4-3.08 ratio
GU5-3.23 ratio
GT4-3.73 ratio
G80-limited slip differential

All of the '79 to '88 G body cars had the 7.5 10 bolt with 26 spline axles, except the Buick T Type, GN and some of the Olds 442s. The only limited slip differentials that were offered in these G body 7.5 rear ends were the Auburn and Governor Lock. There are much better after market differentials available for them now.
