    nope nope nope. Not necessarily. I had an a4 v6 with stock 3.42s in the rear. look at your door codes and look for the one that says GU6 (it'll be GU something and if its 6 then you've got 342s) I don't remember the others. My old v6 had them and my SS has them too. I love it!

    LS1 SS A4's came with 3.23 (GU5). Some Y_ _ (can't remember) V6 A4 cars came with G80 and 3.42's.

    not all they've got 2.73,3.23,3.42 and it seems like one other version. most v6s had I think 3.23s but mine was a lucky one and I gave gts hell.

    z28 a4's also can have a 273 gear... look at the code on your door...option code GU2 is 273's...option code GU5 is 323...option code GU6 is 342... thats the only way to be sure

    well then why does my door code says GU6 and i know for a fact that when you special order a camaro you can get certain option like a Gm performance axle because my cusin ordered his camaro he had some options removed and put in because his a4 also has 3:42 gears as well and also he ordered it without first gear in his shifter so it says 2,D,Overdrive and he ordered it with traction control

    a ss is basically z just a z doesnt have with ram air ,wheels ,ss badges, exhaust, so tell me why the gear ratio would be different between for a Z and a SS i dont think Slp did rear end swaps went it left the GM factory

    why are you TRYING to get in an argument? you answered your own question btw, but i'll answer it again.
    the SS is a per-for-mance package (the debate rages on) just like the ws6. have you ever heard of base model cars and optioned cars? some a4 z's came with 2.73s, some with 3.23s. i would think since the SS is at the top of its respective food chain it would get the choice gear ratios.... having said that, YES you could opt for different things IF you were the original purchaser. But i would say the majority of SS cars had the 3.23 rear.
    please refrain from splitting hairs.....

    I have heard from a few `96-`97 SS Owners that a 3.42 was optional in Auto equipped SS's and 3.73's were Optional in M6's These were SLP upgrades available to whom ever ordered their vehicle. Not sure if this translates to the LS1 cars or not but anything is possible.
