    Does anyone know if the 10 bolt out of a 94 F-Body (Trans Am/Camaro) is the same as the 10 bolt that's in the 97' Tahoe? I know the gearing is different but what about the axels and the rear-end itself?

    I'm real curious cause I have a spare out of my Firehawk (swapped it for a Strange 12-Bolt w/ 33 spline axels) /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Thanks in advance!

    The Firehawk -should- have a 7.5" ring gear (Might be 7.25, can't remember for sure)
    The Tahoe has a 8.5 inch reing gear.

    Also the width is different, as are the tubes and axle-shafts.

    Camabirds share their 10-bolt rear end with the S-trucks. The 10-bolt in full size trucks is a tad beefier. I installed a brand new takeout Torsen diff from a Camabird into my S-Jimmy last year. Dropped right into place. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif
