Will a P295-35 20" on the stock 10 wide rim clear the strut on the front of the 1LE ?

The 1LE has the standard SS aluminum rear with 3.91 gears
The ZL1 has a larger iron rear with a diff cooler. IIRC it has 3.75 but that sounds wrong some how. The auto has something different gear wise.

I think he talking about the Diff. it self it mite be a Torsen . I had one with a 4:1 TBR http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torsen ratio it was good for road racing not so good for Drag racing .

I run one in my Dime,a Zexel (SLP pullout from an F body) it's a solid unit. I didn't know they put that in the 1LE. That's a good thing to me.

Sorry I should have said the Torsen mite be in the ZL1 I thing that what Pete mite have been talking about but I could be wrong. Now the Z/28 is going to have a Torsen in it . We got just a plane old clutch pack diff. with a 2:1 TBR ratio .

Close enough. More precisely, it's a matter of balancing the slip angles front vs rear, which generally follows what you do with tire sizes and wheel widths.

what is the difference in the two rear diffs (1LE vs ZL1)? I ask because I do not know and am curious.
The ZL1 has a 9.9" ring gear and an iron diff case. I think those are ZL1-specific pieces not available otherwise. "Heavy duty limited slip" was mentioned in the early reviews for the ZL1, whatever that means.
