I don't know when I'll be able to do it. Rosner just gave me a quote for $1,800 for parts. But the guy wouldn't give me any more info because I don't have an SS VIN.

So after talking to a few people it looks like Chevy screwed the pooch again. Apparently it is not a direct swap between the V6 A6 and the V8 A6 parts. The driveshaft is different. It will basically require a full rear end swap.

I know the drive-shaft was different.

Dont know what else was needed. I meet someone that did it over here. They got all the parts from junk yard and had it changed. Well that is what he said. Strange everything else on the camaro is stock. lol

Looks like I'll need axles, hubs, diff, and the back part of the driveshaft. I'm gonna call up a junkyard to see if I can price things.

* ZL1 rear driveline system (part number 22959394 for manuals and 22959395 for automatics) –This is the ZL1’s complete rear axle system, which is significantly stronger than the Camaro SS rear axle system. The kit includes a larger, stronger 9.9-inch ring gear with a heavy-duty limited-slip differential in a cast iron housing; stronger driveshaft and stronger asymmetrical half-shafts, which include a 60mm hollow shaft on the right and a 33mm solid shaft on the left. Their different torsional stiffness rates work in conjunction with the limited-slip differential to minimize the chance of wheel hop at launch. The kit is a direct bolt-in for the Camaro SS and V-6 models, although additional parts may be required for installation. Manual transmission kits feature a 3.73 axle ratio and automatic transmission kits have a 3.23 ratio

Just got off the phone with Jannety Racing. It would cost me $600 per axle, $900 for a new driveshaft, and $2,600 with a $1,200 core charge for a differential with 3.73 gears. I don't know how I would ever be able to work that.

So I've found some used parts that look to be a nice price. I have a guy that is willing to sell both rear axles with 1k miles on them for $250. He also has a differential for $175 but I don't particularly understand his descriptions. It says it includes clutches & gears but with no ring & pinion. Does this mean I will have to buy new gears?

Does anybody have any insight on this?

Sounds like a good deal on axles and yes you need to get gears now. And then have them put in.

Drive shaft ?
