So did you feel much of a difference when you switched it. Was it REALLY worth the 800.00 (uugghhh) You Spent???

I'm having the work done sometime next week. I ordered all the parts last week so they've been trickling into the shop this week. From everything I've read on the subject lowering the final drive ratio is one of the most rewarding mods in terms of bang for buck. Compare it to a turbo/supercharger kit and its pretty reasonable. One of the older guys in my Camaro club (Camaros of east texas) swears that this mod truly "brings the car to life". As fun as the car is to drive stock I'm excited to see how this will feel.

Will be putting 6th gear to good use on my long trips home to GA from TX though.

It was a little over $1000 total for the carrier, lsd, and 1LE ring and pinion kit. Yeah, $700 was for the center section but it did not include the ring and pinion kit.

How much ? And y 3.23 gears not 3.27 ? That must be a typo

I'm sorry but if you're going to be doing this swap for the gearing change instead of the LSD, I'd go big or go home and do the 3.91 gears of the 1LE. Something to think about is that as far as I know, you'll have to get tune to correct your speedo for the gearing difference. A tune means voided warranty.

Yeah I'm going with a full 1LE rear end, which, to my knowledge is just an SS setup with 3.91gears. I'm getting the adjustment for speedo/odo done soon after. My install guys are including a dyno day in my labor costs so I'll be going 3.91 and advancing ignition timing and such. I'll have a lot to be thankful for at thanksgiving lol.

You're going to need different axles as well. 2LS has different axles from the rest of the Camaro fleet. Luckily those don't cost near as much as everything else.

I think you guys are mixing up the "carrier" and the "housing"... You can not install 8.6" gears (3.91) in a 7.6" housing, regardless of the carrier (which is the thing that the ring gear bolts to)

If you want 3.91 gears, you have to get the m6 v6/SS housing, internals, and externals (axles, hubs, drive shaft).

Oops! Yeah you're right. I was saying carrier to mean the entire differential gear box. Good spot, sir!

Yea I also was carrier meaning entire differential.

Can't wait till 6bangerBOOM installs his rear end. Looking forward to the results.

I had the same problem with the Richmond 3.55 gear set not fitting....They are suppose to send me a new carrier and gears....I opted to change the whole rear diff...3.45, axles and hubs from an ss. I like it a lot better than the old rear....Richmond needs to get off their butts and send my my parts so I can sell them to get my money back for the labor I had to pay to find out their gears are falsely advertised at fitting all camaro's 2010 up.

How much of a difference did do the 3.45's make over stock gears. Thanks for the info, and sorry you had to go thru all that trouble.

It depends a little on what your goals are for the car. Is this a daily driver and gas mileage is important, a 1/4 mile strip car, a road race track car, or a weekend fun car? Lower gears will improve acceleration at the potential cost of gas mileage.

Your right we have nothing to lose but alot to gain. But we would have to get a LT carrier for the 3.55 bc they don't fit into the 2ls carrier from what I've read.

I use my Camaro for weekend fun and some spirited driving here and there. When I do the swap, I'll be getting my money's worth and doing the 3.91s. Yea I'll lose some mileage on the highway but I'll gain a lil on the street.
