any of you V6 - 5 speed drivers switch the stock 3.08 to the 3.73? ive got the G80 factory lim. slip and i want a lower gear. what is everyone's thoughts on this? how did it affect acceleration, gas mileage, 1/4 mile times? Thanks for all replies.
ok, so where is the best place to get gears. the drive line shop that is doing the install uses Precision Gears and is charging a lot for them. has anyone heard of them? i was thinking of just buying some Richmond gears and having them installed. Any ideas...
save your money. I went to the junkyard and got a complete 3.73 rear out of a wrecked 89 s-10 for $125. Added zex, $100, new bearings seals, $75, and the 28 spline axles out of my truck Free. Got complete setup for $300. That's probably what they're askin for just the gears.
Also, I have the complete rear, so if I ever wanted to switch back to my factory gears, it's 8 nuts and bleed the brakes.
