    I wouldn't go with anything other than 4.10's for an M6.

    A friend of mine just installed a set of Motive 4.10's on his '97 Z28 M6. The gears ran him $170 shipped off E-bay and the install was $300 at a local shop. He wen't with a Raytech install kit for $40 shipped from Summit Racing.

    Ok well my buddy is wanting to go back stock on his z28 cause he drives a lot of highway, and I only drive mine on the weekends, but her is wanting stock and he wants to trade me, just swap out the whole rear end for rewar end, he has a 95 firebird rear end with 4:10 and he wants to go back to stock, so u think I should do it?

    That would be the way to go. Make sure he has no gear whine. Do both cars have traction control?
