    Yes, it'll work. The traction control isn't handled through the rear differential. Does it have better gearing than yours or is it stock?

    Yes it does my car is a auto.This rear end has 3:42. Was that a good price for the rear?:

    I meant the PCM controls the traction control. Yes, good price so put' er in!

    I was just wondering,because I have a98 trans am.on my t/a I only have 1 abs sensor on top of the axle housing(pumpkin),I believe that the 02 camaro has them on the backing plate on each wheel.therefore what is happening is that the 98 only has a 3 channel abs setup,where as the 02 has a 4 channel.theres no way to get the 4 channel to properly hook up to the 3 channel system & make it work properly.your only option is to do without abs,therefore your also doing without traction control,because the computer uses this info from the abs to control the traction control.Ive been there & had to use the parts from the newer model unit to repair my older model axle.

    I have an 02 F-body LS1 and PCM and the ABS system has its own stand alone module and traction control is handled through the PCM under Torque Management retarding the timing and reducing RPM. ABS is a totally different system from traction control, don't let the two confuse you. As far as a 3 sensor or 4, you can still make them work using the new differential. As far as a 98 goes, I can't tell you but I'm pretty sure the ABS is seperate from the PCM. Even my truck ABS is standalone from the PCM. If anyone knows on the 98's feel free to expand on this.

    If they're both the same channel ABS from 98-02, just plug & play - have a '98 in mine.

    from what i understand,it is a separate system,but the computer picks up information from the abs sensors to know when to apply the traction control.it uses info from the front abs sensors vs. the rear abs sensors to detect wheel spin,then the computer bogs the engine with less timing & fuel.

    I have to agree with you on this. I forgot about the ABS sending a signal to the PCM. I jump the gun every once in awhile, sorry bro!

    I believe you just hit it on the nose.swap out the backing plates & there you go.then you can hook everything up like its supposed to be,nothing to rig up or nothing left unhooked,not working.

    Great Idea! Let us know how things work out. My truck has a cheesy ABS system unlike the F-body and it runs stand alone. I know I stripped the ABS connnector out of the LS1 harness when I put it in my truck. If there was a 5 1/2" on 5" bolt pattern on the F-body rear end I"d put one in my truck also. BTW, What is the F-body bolt pattern?

    Thanks, Too bad it's too small. I would've loved disc brakes on the back of the truck.
