    After 1988 all 7.5 inch 10 bolts were upped to 7.625 inch ring gears. S-10 trucks, Astro vans and F-body's all used this rear axle.

    I would not recommend getting a used gear set. They have to be setup with the same pinion depth and lash as in the original carrier, or they get noisy. Better to invest in new gears.
