    Hi I've had given to me a complete diff from an 80 trans am im told its a 3.08 posi 8.5 housing I dont know a heck of alot about diffs but will the posi unit and gears fit my 71 lark? My diff is a 8.5 open rear not sure what gears are in it

    The posi and gears will fit your lark rear. A direct swap.

    It is a 3 series posi carrier so it can hold 2.76 ratio and numerically larger.

    3.08 is an excellent all around gearset for street performance, especially with manual trans or 3 spd auto trans like a th350.

    Is it a WS6 rear, with discs? If so, you might be able to sell it complete for good money.
