Hi. I bought a very clean 92' Olds CC with 71K on it yesterday. A couple of noob questions...

1. Where do you all buy your rear end gears? I've got a healthy 350 farting into a 2.73... I'm looking to burn more gas. I know how to pull parts, but do you have any favorite aftermarket spots for gearing or LSDs?

2. If I wanted to put a Chevy woodgrain decal kit on a '92 Olds (which never came with wood, right?) would you call bullshit? It's white, so it's sort of crying out for it.

Thanks.

1. I would not put used parts in the car. Richmond better grade gears and Truetrac posi.

2. You do not have the upper trim to cover the edge of the woodgrain. It would look home done.

If you are going to change ratios, you must regear the VSS. You have an 18 tooth pinion. 3.23 requires a green or purple gear, and a 3.42 requires a purple or dk. gray. You can also change the drive gear to get an acceptable ratio.

You will get about a quart or two of fluid out of the trans when you pull the VSS, so be prepared to catch it.
