    What rear end came in the 2000 Camaro SS?

    Just need to know not sure if I want to change anything. Also how do you know if your SS has the Hurst short throw and not just the Hurst nob on it?

    Sadly now demodded :(

    IIRC, all F-body rear ends since 3rd gen (except for some 3rd gen 7.625 9 bolts) are 7.5" 10 bolts.

    Essentially it's an S10 truck rear end.

    You guys are so funny, and you remind me of why you must change the rear end out, 4.10gears and stock rearend in SS=broke rearend. a S10 truck, really? You make it sound so whimmy.

    Well with a 6 speed it might aswel be glass. 4 speed trannies seem to be more forgiving but ca still break them. Since they dropped the bigger older 10 bolts for the cheapy it has been quite apparent with ltx and lsx equipped cars

    i know some have auburn, but i dunno what the other one is, GM brand maybe? i dunno.

    As far as gearing, most M6's came with 2.73, but some have 3.42. there's an RPO code that will let you know

    Please get your facts straight.

    As far as V8 F-body cars go:

    All 6 speed cars have 3.42 gearing.

    Z28 A4 will have 2.73 standard with 3.23 optional.

    SS A4 has 3.23 standard.

    An old LT1 M6 I had came with 3.08 gearing but MOST of the time you'll find them with 3.42s. The "auburn" would be the LSD not the "rear-end" itself. Most have Zexel-Torsen and not the AUburns anyways. The ZTs are nothing but junk and the Auburns are a little better, but not by much.

    Funny thing is, I've never had a problem with the 2 ZTs I've had

    It really depends on tires and tranny. 7.5" 10 bolt with gears/sticky tires and a T56 + high RPM launch = you're asking for problems (eventually). Same with an A4 = no problem (except you should use a solid bushing vs a crush sleeve, otherwise gears will start to howl).

    OTOH, my friend has a LM7 with LS6 bump stick and a T56 in front of a 8.2" with 3.73's in his 67 Camaro with MT ET Street drag radials. He broke the output shaft on the tranny Friday (on a 5k rpm clutch dump).

    So I guess you never know what'll break.

    M6 shocks the gears pretty hard. With a stalled A4 they're preloaded when you foot brake it before the launch. The stickier the tire the more the shock.

    And with my buddies 67: He hasn't taken it out yet but apparently you can start it and let out the clutch and it doesn't move. It's definetly tranny though. But the driveshaft turns when you push it. My guess was output shaft but it might be the input shaft.

    Nobody mentioned the B4C that stock is equiped with the 3.23. You nail that on the highway bout 60 and your up to intercept speed in no time flat!

    3.42's (GU6) were std on all M6 from 1994 -up thanks to CAGS (skip shift)
    `93 F-bodies had 2 different M6's one for 2.73 geared cars and one for 3.23 geared cars.

    All auto's are either 2.73 (GU2) or 3.23 (GU5)
    No factory auto car came with a 3.42
    But if you think you have one post a pic of you RPO list from the drivers door for us to verify. I've never seen one and it would be a very interesting find.
    Also Y2Y SLP optioned SS auto's with their available option 3.42's don't count.

    The POS 7.5 " 10 bolt is the same as S10's but it dates back to the mid `70 Monza and Sunbirds.

    I've also heard of many M6 cars that have broken 12bolts aswell.

    Yes the Y87 Automatics did come with 3.42's (have a friend that has one).
    But like you said they don't count becase their 3.8's

    I have 3.73's (Cryogenic treated) stock rearend, and a Y3000 stall with 285x35xzr18 all the way around.

    My motor is stock, and transmission has a race servo, and shift kit.

    I have had this setup for over 9 years on my 01 Z28, and have had no problems with the rearend whatsoever.
