I have a 68 GTO with 3.08 Non-Posi, 8.2". In my search for a better rear end i came across a 76 Cutlass Rear end with 3:73 posi. Will this bolt in?
The GTO has a TH400 Transmission, please give thoughts on using this rear end.
Had same gears and posi in a '67 Cutlass, 330ci, and loved it.
Thanks

Hi John, I assume the th400 is a "PX" code. If your axel code is a "WE"code it is factory, a "YE" code would be with locking diff. It depends on what your trying to achieve. Are you looking for street or highway driving. If you have air conditioning that can be a factor. I am going by factory availability. you could go with a 3.36 or a 3.55 in the same carrier and even upgrade to a safety track rear end. Good luck with your decision hopefully some more knowledgeable members will wade in. The more info you give the better answers you get.

No AC on my GTO,this will be a daily driver, some highway, i haven't had the engine apart yet but guessing its pretty much stock, I won't be overpowering the rear end.
Will a 76 cutlass rear end bolt in to a 68 GTO?
Thanks
