It is commonly known as the "Austrailian 9-bolt".
It has a 7.75 inch ring gear, commonly found in 1986 through 1993 Camaro and Firebirds.

Just for informational purposes, you have the weakest axle GM ever had contracted out for build.

There are not many upgrades mentioned for this axle except to commonly swap it for something easier to find parts for.

ANY amount of power over a hot 4 cylinder, warmed over 6, or decent 8- will kill it.

Add slicks and its a goner.

I hope I don't bust your bubble with this common knowledge, but its better than building your car and throwing the axle on the road with the first hint of "real power".

Yup, I had one in my 87 Camaro - it broke three times and I was only running 14.60's in the 1/4 mi.
