ZL1 Differential & axles

Just wondering if the ZL1 differential and axles will bolt up to an SS camaro, found a GM website that finally carries the parts. I am going to head to my local GM dealer and ask someone there this weekend...excellent pricing on GM parts and so far they have been taking the abuse, just wondering if anyone have info

So you would save a grand over the aftermarket built ones? also i believe gforce has a warranty on their's.

Actually if you buy the differential and both axles (manual trans) it came out to roughly $2757 before shipping, not bad for a 9.9 inch rear in my opinion, pretty good bang for the buck in my opinion

The subframe it bolts into is different. I dont think the ZL1 diff will bolt into the SS subframe since its larger.

Yea you're right and the built ones are like $4500. I guess I just don't want to buy factory to do things they weren't designed for again. I bought an ls9r clutch and I don't make the 900 tq claim that it can handle and i feel if i bought aftermarket I could say "hey you said it's designed for this. what gives?" So I guess in short I feel like if I'm going to shell out that much money I might as well get the best I can.

I hear you with that, after hearing about the pontential cradle difference that kinda burst my bubble...also looking on that website you can buy the ZL1 clutch and pressure plate for $332 and ZL1 flywheel for $558 which is good pricing also, just more options to look at pending peoples needs

The zl1 pressure plate wont work on your stock crank. it has 8 bolts vs your ls3's 6. The actual clutch and pressure plate might though.

Why not just bolt a whole ZL1 cradle and rear end in?

You will need new hubs too, for the axles to fit in them, and last i think the only difference in the subframe is the cooler lines and pump mounting on the subframe.
