chevy 10 bolt rear question

I have a 65 el camino with stock rear end from what i gather its an 8.2" 10 bolt right? due to monetary restrictions i will keep it in place the guidance i received was to switch to 3.70 gears i would also like to run a posi unit so 2 questions what parts do i need to get to do this and if im not on the right track what kind of rear end set up would you recommend for this 10 bolt i want to run a ZZ430 (430 hp/tq) with the powerglide

It would be an 8.2" unless someone at some point swapped in the rather rare late '72 8.5" 10-bolt. Easy picture chart to ID the 10-bolt rears is at Go to site map and click on axle codes, pics are on that page to determine what it is by casting identifying shapes.

You'll need gears, a set-up kit with bearings, and a 3 series posi unit. I'd recommend an Eaton or Yukon Duragrip posi unit; Yukon, Motive, Auburn, or Richmond gears.
