Edit: After looking into it, it's not for the 2010 camaro only fits chevy pickups.

I would call and ask about this first. There is a GM 8.6 and a GM 8.6 IRS. I think this kit here is for the non-IRS rear end, not ours.

Yeah, double check before you buy.

I disconnected everything from the outer wheel hub (not sure if that's what it's called?). But I unbolted the rear brake calipers, upper and lower control arms, trailing arms, toe rods, emergency brake cable, and speed sensor cable (basically everything and anything that connects to the that outer wheel hub). Then with one good "tug", I pulled the whole axle/wheel hub out of the differential. It's heavy and awkward, but it does come out pretty easily that way. There are some D-I-Y instructions too....if you go into the D-I-Y section and do a search for the word "differential" in the title. Or, you can download complete instruction from the Pfadt website....use their Differential Bushing Installation instructions. Hope this helps!!
Thanks! I checked out the pfadt instructions, doesn't look too bad!

They are supposedly a direct fit to the SS.....as long as you buy the 1LE Hubs to go with them, and as we just found out.....new axle nuts too! And yes, they are supposedly stronger, from what I'm hearing, pretty much just like a ZL1 axle but made to fit the GM8.6 IRS rear differential.

I came up with 734.00 shipped for the 2 Axles, 2 hubs. That's a lot of money if they turn out to not be much stronger. IF they could hold up to about 650hp they would be worth it.

Anyone have any idea what chevy dealer will install the gears in the Austin Texas area? Talked to two so far and one said no "we can not alter a car if there is warranty still on the car" and the other quoted $850 to install....

3rd dealer says $975.................

That sounds more like it! The ones that charge $800 do so because they don't know how to do it and will take twice as long!
