As soon as a guy tries to drag himself up out of the gutter, they drag him right back in.....wow.............................ha....
OK, I'll bite....went for a drive this morning (already) and found a 12 bolt posi rear with 4.56 gear ratio.
How about when I opened it up and found a ring gear spacer meaning it's actually a 3 series diff that can hold more desirable gear sets. :wink2:
See the rusty line between the flange and the gear? That's the spacer. A hack way of upping the gear count without changing the carrier. But, good for me.
Thinking 3.73:1 for excellent acceleration and with an overdrive tranny, half decent mileage to boot.
Of course this means I need to find a donor vehicle with a 5.3 liter and 4L60e tranny.
Sorry . . . . it was just a suggestion (the mods might want a new thread - dunno).
So, remove the spacer to allow room for a larger pinion?
