    Need opinion on rear end problem

    I bought a 99 z28 recently and the gear were whining a little. Well i am going ton have to replace the whole rear end. The shop quoted me a ridiculous 1700 to redo it. I can get a complete rear from billy grahams with basically no miles on it for around 650. Would that be the best way to go or could i do better?

    Are they stock 3.42s? Just thinking someone might have put aftermarket 3.73 or 4.10s in it???? I bought a low mileage complete rear from a friend who purchased a strange 12 bolt. Neither car had traction control and it was an easy install.

    I wasnt clear. The gears have dug all into the carrier and tore the bearings up and everything else. Its not just a little gear whine. I am lucky it hasnt totally come apart going down the road.

    Used 10 bolts are for sale all the time for $300 or less. I sold mine for $100 when I bought my 12 bolt. DO NOT pay $1,700 for another 10 bolt.

    I just recently bought a 2000 SS Camaro and I noticed a noise coming from the rear of the car. Don't know if its the rear end or bearings.

Oh, Its a automatic...
