The '55-'64 Chevy uses a 3 series differential for the 3.70 gear, so you should be able to install a 3.36 or 3.55 on the differential that you have now. The 4.10 uses a 4 series. These guys might be able to tell you what those numbers mean. http://www.trifive.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=52

GM rearends

Your best bet would be to go for a chunk (if you have 56 housing) and get a 3.36 or 3.56 already set up, just pull the drive shaft, the axles and unbolt and re bolt (using a new gasket) These rearends were popular in the early 60's ( until 64) gl

I have a possible chance at a 1957 rear end, "chunk" is that the word for front housing pinon and ring gears? "3rd member" ? Would my axles "56" fit in the 57 chunk without any change? Thanks for any info.
