When the Eaton 8.2 Pontiac carriers were introduced in the early 00's, there was a mid ratio (2.93-3.08-3.23) carrier, and a low ratio (3.36-5.57) carrier. Unfortunately, over the last 4-5 years, it's been near impossible to come up with an Eaton Pontiac 8.2 carrier in the mid ratio design. Over the years I've ordered several of the Eaton 8.2's along with several of the Auburn Pro Series Pontiac 8.2 carriers. Nearly all were installed in nodular 8.2 Pontiac 10 bolts. Both are a better design if the nodular 8.2 is getting hammered on. Short of that abuse, one can get by with the standard Auburn cone type carrier.
In a position, where Pontiac 8.2 center housing is just a std gray iron 8.2, the sealed bearing axles need replacing, and one is interested in swapping in a posi and/ or gears for a performance build, blowing the bank on building up the gray iron 8.2 is a total waste of funds. Much easier and less expensive to have a HD 8.5 A body rear built.
