Default what gear ratio

My 96 SS slp Camaro A4 is all original and stock I was wondering what gear ratio it has in the rear end I know it is a torsen carrier. The pinion has play in it and leaks. I can get a low mileage 3:42 complete rear out of a 2001 Camaro for 350 bucks is it the same ratio and is it much trouble to change out. I would like the bigger brakes also as an added bonus. Pre thanks Edd

Is the 95 a traction control car?

Sure it will What you need to know is whether or not the axle from the 01 is a 3 channel or 4 channel rear. You will need the 4 channel if you have traction control. If you dont have TC, you want a 3 channel rear. The difference between the two is that the 3 channel has the reluctor wheel mounted to the differential inside the housing and the sensor goes through the top. A 4 channel(TC) axle will have one reluctor wheel on each axle and a sensor running through the brake caliper.

Unless you are willing to give up your Anti Lock Brakes then no, you do not want a 4 channel rear.

Yea the junk yard is full of it. You are right the brakes are bigger, i forgot that, but they will fit also. I guess you'd have to get the whole assembly including brakes. The brake lines may be a little different also..i wouldn't say it doesnt bolt in because of that though. As far as suspension geometry etc all that stuff bolts right up.

Default brakes are bigger

Place that has the 3:42 rear says it is a three chanel and will work in My 96SS with a few mods and will give Me instructions to do so. He has done alot of them before. I am also converting the from brakes too the larger LS1 set up. Thanks again guys for Your imput and if You have anyother ideas let Me know. My next mod will be converting the A4 to M6 as soon as I get the parts. I am retired and have the time to do so. My SS is not My everday driver so I can avail Myself of the mods without concerns of time frame. I am also looking at this time looking to find a 2002 SS or WS6 for another fun car to drive. I have owned over 25 Camaros in My 66 years of living on this earth and at least 12 Trans Ams. F-Cars forever Guys Big thanks to You all Edd
