Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1968 Chevy El Camino. It has the stock GM 8.2" 10-bolt rear end in it. Will a GM
8.5" Rear end from a 1977 Chevelle fit in my car? What rear differentials will fit in my body

1 Answer


The only way would be to change the entire housing, it would be cheaper than having some one changing the gears Best bet
