    Hello everyone, I have been here a while until now I have found everything I needed without posting. What i need is a way to I.D a 3:56.1 rear for my gen 1 five speed. Found a few for the v6 auto but it said 3:31. I don't mind paying for one but i don't want the 3.31...

    Thanx in advance
    Gary

    I saw one on ebay listed as a gen 1 but also stated as a 3.31 so i just wanted to have a way to be sure.

    diff tag bolted to one of the cover bolts.

    these are 8.8 tags, but the principal stands.

    3 07 is a 3.07 open diff.

    3L73 is a 3.73 track lock diff.

    you wont find an LS diff with a track lock, but now you know what the tags look like.

    This project got back burnered as we built an LS powered 97 sonoma. I do have the rear end and installed new axle seals. Did not get the limited slip yet though. It will be a direct replacement the only thing I have to find is someone who can reset the speedo.

    I am gathering info on swapping an lsd to mine. As far as I know the best option is the Mark VIII carrier with a custom bracket. I haven't found anything as a direct bolt in.
    So basically the project is still alive, just in stand by.
