2ls LFX rear gear ratio?

Is there a difference between the A6 2ls rear gear ratio and A6 lt rear gear ratio?

yes the 2ls has a 2.92 ratio compare to the 1lt 2lt a6 at 3.27 i believe the ss a6 is also 3.27.

Thanks. I'm kinda disappointed. I picked up a 2ls assuming all LFX's had 3.27.
I guess I gotta seriously consider the 3.55 upgrade or wait to see if richmond will make a 3.73 for the A6 LFX

Yep this is a great site for info. Plus the 2ls is a terrific car as well giving time hopefully there will be abit more mods out for the rear end and gears for the a6.

Something will come out eventually that's bad marketing by Chevy if they don't clarify the different rear ends.

Yea I doubt they would actually say," well sir, are you aware your getting 2.92 gears instead of the 3.27 gears" for about the same price. Now I got a reason to get some 3.55's atleast of find a deal on a ss rear to swap which I wanted to do anyway

The SS and v6 M6's come with 3.45's. U could use the same gears as the SS, so u can get 4.11's with no problem.

It would accelerate way faster, but u would shave away some top speed and loose 1-2 mpg on the highway but on the streets you would increase mpg if your light on the pedal because the engine wouldn't have to work as hard to get up to the speed limit for the streets.

i was thinking 3.73 for mine eventually as well. when i got the car new the ideal of putting a new rear end in at the time wasn't what i wanted to do so i opted for the m6.

I would like to find someone who has done the swap to get complete info. My understanding is the driveshaft rear flange is different also on the A6 V6 also.
Anyone here done the A6 LFX diff swap please contact me. I have power I need to get planted to the ground to go deep into the 12 second ETs. Can't put the juice on in 1st with a one tire fire.

Don't forget you need a tune to correct the speedometer.
