New Gears

Ok so I have an auto and I have decided that for my next upgrade I want to upgrade my gears. I think I have 2.73 but I dont know how to tell. Anyways its a daily driver so would 3.73s be good? Good on the highway? And what would my car top out at?

I love my T/A

3.73's are a great all around gear accompanied with the 4l60e. Is a great upgrade and you wont regret it.

There's a code in the glove box that tells you your gear. What's even easier is if you have gear "1" on your selector, you have 3.23's. At least that's how I remember it. 2.73's were too loud for gm to put in a select for gear 1 apparently.

Motive or Richmond are two of the best brands. The amount of noise all depends on the setup really.
