G-body Rear-end gears

Hey, can anyone tell me any details on the gears used in a '84 Pontiac Grand Prix? or where to look for numbers or to get info? I would like to install a higher set of gears to work with the 350 enigine and turbo-350 tranny, and am just wondering what I'm dealing with. Thanks for any help.

Oh, and I know it's not POSI if that helps any (when in the air, turning one wheel turns the other backwards)

1984 Pontiac Grand Prix
-350 4-bolt main
-Torker II Intake
-Holley 600 cfm 4-barrel
-Flowmaster Afterburner headers
-Turbo 350 Transmission

I have a 86 cutlass supreme G - body, it came with snail like 2.14:1 gears, after some thinking, I went to my bro in law`s who had a 3.23:1 posi rear out of a 83 firebird t/a, all I did was swap guts from the t/a rear to mine, I`ve did this on another rear for a friend of mine since, but looked at 32 junkyard camaro Z28`s and firebird t/a`s before I found one, the F-body rear end codes are on the passenger side front axle tube, they`re both 7.5 diameter, and will last decently as long as your not running a lot of power and have slicks on the car. the 88 and up F-body`s used a aussie rear that won`t interchange. here are the codes for the F-body rears.

The diff has to be set up right, toe, heel, backlash and etc. and to keep the rear from popping, use GM limited slip differential additive, around $11 from any GM dealer.

I bought a new Cutlass in 84 and the optional "performance" rear was a 2.41, I had a good laff at that.
