BEFORE: (100,000 miles of daily grind on the rear brakes)

4.11 rear and new rear brakes - DONE!! IMG_20121102_0948172

REAR: Started life as 2.56 then 3.08 (just because), then 3.73 (as an automatic they were wonderful), now 4.10/4.11 works better for towing with t56.

Took my time and painted everything up and replaced the wheel cylinders.

Watch for leaping sheds.

Looks nice. I bet those gears make that a REALLY fun car.

Yeah, I think the sheds are in rut. I almost had one jump in front of me last night or was that a deer..... hmmmm.

YES 4.11 + 355 + T56 = FUN

I have not been on the highway just yet. based on my excel spread sheet it should be at 1779 RPM at 70 MPH. But that seems kind of low. I will report back.

Had 2 doe and 2 much younger deer in my front yard at 4am when I put my girls out.These 2 does must not be in the mood yet
because they stay in my yard most all night and sometimes until 10am.Use to them now but they scare my girls.Better in my yard
than on the road destroying cars!

You'll love the gears. Best thing you can do for a T56.

Speaking of wildlife in the yard, I had two of these in my backyard yesterday. No, not mine.

Congrats on the gear swap. Now it feels like a stock Impala. Smile

Did you setup the gears yourself? Did you have to change the pinion spacer or the carrier shims?

I get the bearing caps, shims, and even the bolts, but labeling the axle housing L and R while it's in the car.... OK.... I guess.
Seems akin to labeling a dash that's in a car L and R so you know where to sit. Rolling Eyes

I am now doing 1750 ish RPM @ 60 MPH and I can get into 6th @ about 53 mph (was 63). Much better. Particularly better in parking lots/driveway. Tows much better to.

Well, you scoff now, but what happens when you put it together backwards and have to drive from the passenger's side? Very Happy
