    sorry to post here but you have PM turned off.

    Did you try LKQ in Daytona Beach? It used to be called something like Daytona U-Pull it or something like that. Its 2 bucks to walk the yard. There is a u-pull it in Debary off of 17/92 near the St Johns Bridge. There are a couple of u-pull its on East 50 in Orlando.

    The only thing I don't like is they have zero inventory so you spend a couple of bucks walking the yard. But...most will pull the hot items and sell from behind the counter. I bet a camaro/firebird rear end would be a behind the counter part at some of the u-pull it places.

    BTW, are you sure you really want the whimpy 7.5 10 bolt? I won't even take my car to the track because I don't want it to break.

    You can try ebay to. There are a couple of regulars that sell them for about 300-500 + shipping.

    Hope this helps find what you need.

    sorry I can't find any of the business cards for the places I have been too. I found all of these places by asking local shops, like Tires Plus and stuff like that. The phone book is awful at finding businesses. I have always had better luck asking my local mechanic shops. good luck.

    you can also chat with mrr23. He is mod here and an admin on those boards.

    i wasn't aware the 93-02 rear end would bolt into an 3rd gen. I thought the 3rd gen was narrower or something like that.

    The 4th gen rears bolt up to a 3rd gen fine, but you're right they are 3-4" wider depending on the year. This is fixed by running 4th gen wheels. Right now I am running 02 speedlines with 2" spacers so I just remove the spacers and the rear will fit perfect. You also need to fit the brake lines and emergency brake cable to work. Not a big deal. So everyone says

    Appreciate the links I will check those forums out!!
