    Rear End HELP Needed!!

    Hey guys. The stock 10-bolt just grenaded in my 2000 SS and I had (2) questions:

    1: What parts do I need to get the rear-end back up and running? I am going to be selling the car soon so a 9" or 12-bolt is not an option for me. Do I need just differential, r & p gears, installation kit, new cover? Am I missing anything?

    2: I found an Eaton Posi Diff and GM 4.30 gears new in the box for a great price. My question is, will they fit? The gears are "Series 3" supposed to be stock GM material for 7.5" & 7.625" rears. Says they will drop right into 1982 & up Camaro/Firebird, but will I need any special items like spacers or anything? And the Eaton Posi is for Series 3 7.5" with 28-spline axles.\

    Thanks for the help!

    1. Depends on whats broke but most likely you need differential, r & p gears, installation kit, and gear lube.

    2. sounds like it'll fit just fine.

    Yup your right. Had the rear inspected today and looks like those are the parts needed. So a Eaton and 4.30's will be going in, and hopefully soon this car will be sold!
