Next upgrade ZL1 diff.

Just scored a 3.73 zl1 diff with the help of my buddy. Pulled from a stripped 2014 ZL1. Waiting on axles and driveshaft. Should keep me from a broken diff worry. Never heard of anyone breaking one yet. Getting installed with my adm performance 15 inch rear wheel/brake combo, billet adm subframe bushings, carbon composite upper mounts and my dragstar wheels. Going to run 275/60/15 mickey pro x drag radials. This all should help me get out of the hole pretty well.

Is it weird that I'm more interested in the early a-body in the background?

I suspected it was a 64 or 65, Mine is a 65 cutlass f85, pro touring. Hotchkis upper a arms with global west bushings in the lowers with xtra tall ball joints, Hellwig pro-touring sways, UMI rear control arms. Ls1 swap with 4L60E, ls1 Fbody brakes front and rear. Try finding trim for a 65 cutlass,I wish it was a Chevy sometimes! As it is I have to find a fender, door skin, and rear quarter skin.
