big gear head The 8.5 corporate rear end uses the same 3 series differential for all gears from 2.73 to 5.13. The 2.56 to 2.14 gears use a 2 series differential. It would be much easier for you to find a complete rear end with the gears that you want instead of trying to change the gears in the one that you have. You can not simply take a set of gears out of one rear end and bolt them into another without setting the pinion depth, bearing preload and backlash.

Thanks for the info.....

rusthater89 It might not fit right because the pinion gear will be too big when changing the gears to a ratio that is numerically lower. You may need a new carrier.

boilernspector Thanks, I'll have to think about that one.....

bullheimer and go to calculator. if you are using a truck rear end you might not even be able to get higher gears like that 2:73 so check what's available. i think under 3 would be a mistake. thought about taller tires?

Blazer gear ratio change for Chevy 292

I have a rat rod with a 1995 Blazer 8.5-10 bolt rear end, with G-80 Eaton limited slip,3:72 gears. This is matched up to a Chevy 292 with a 3 speed Saginaw tranny.
This setup is to low for cruising. 55mph=2500 rpm, I was thinking of changing the rear end gears to a 2:73 or 3:08. Any help/ideas,suggestions would be appreciated......
