'82-newer are coil springs, and use the weak 7.5/7.625" "baby" 10-bolt rear originally designed for the 4 cylinder Vega. Not an axle to use in any kind of performance build.

Yea, leaf springs through '81 and then coil springs with the long torque arm from '82 to '02. I don't understand why GM couldn't use something stronger than the weak 7.5 rear end in these cars. Some of them made more power than most of the earlier cars, but the rear end couldn't handle it.
