92 Chevy 1500 w/t rearend Swap

I got a 1992 Chevy 1500 (Silverado) W/T 2WD with a 2.83 rearend I think (my glovebox sticker is worn out to where I cant make out the codes) and a 200 transmission (swapping out for a 700r4 due to various issues). My problem lies within that itself, the rearend is all about heavy duty and therefore kills my gas milage. I would love to put a 3.73 or higher rearend under it, ideally a camaro posi rearend.

So my question is: Is it possible to put a posi camaro rear end under my truck? Also, what all would be involved in such a task? Since I assume it won't be a simple drop and go procedure.

IF the camaro rear end won't it, can I use a standard s10 rear end or should I just scrounge around until I find another silverado rear end with 3.73 or higher gears?
