robbie thoreson funny u should say that bout the gov loc. i have on in my 425 powered c10. last week i shreaded a thirty spline axle spinning on a icy hill. was doing around 30 when i started to spin, i let off and when th wheel speed got below the gov speed, it locked and snapped the axle on the dry. nothing wrong with the locker tho and i love it. works great and i do recomend them for responcible drivers

SSedan64 Stay away from the Gov-Lock Diff, An Auburn or Eaton Posi will work well.

The 8.5" 10-Bolt is a strong Rear.
Lots of upgrades available, 30-Spline Axles, Posi's, Soilid Pinion Spacer, Diff Girdle Cover.

robbie thoreson just wondering but what would the 8.2 measure out to be and where do you mesure?

eloc431962 GZ should be a 2.73 Rear Gear (Open).
N 1235542 B shows it being a 8.5 but don't hold me to that measure the rear cover and see what size it is should be like 11.250 for the 8.5.

73 firebird rear decode help

Hey everyone I need some help figuring out what kind of rear end my moms firebird has.

Here are the codes I have found...
GZC 178 1
N 1235542 B

I'd like to know if it's a 8.2 or 8.5 is it a BOP or a standard GM rear?
