Rear Gears

I've heard that the SS 3.45 Gears can be used on a V6 Camaro 6 speed - anyone know if this is true or not?

Why are you wanting different rear end? Gearing? Here is the gear ratios of transmissions so you can make an apple to apple decision. There are very different gearing in V6 vs V8 transmissions. Years ago, there were a few that went with 3.91 rear end gears for the V6. On a side note, if you put 1le size tires on it essentially gives you a 3.36 ratio rear end (for a 3.27 factory ratio).

I have 275/35/18 on them now. which gives me about a 3.68 ratio. The 3.45 would give me a 3.95

I'm running SS gears and I love them. Gives that tiny bit extra advantage without changing the car fundamentally.

When you say SS gears, do you mean manual trans (SS) or auto trans (SS)? Because there is a difference in gearing. Auto trans (SS) rearend gear ratio is 3.27, same as V6.

Correct. I'm running 3.45s since swapping to "SS automatic gears" would not really be swapping, you could just remove the V6 gears and place them back in the carrier and call them SS automatic gears lol.
