    Dino, the '66 - '70 Wildcat/Electra/Riviera ring & pinions are part of the early 9 3/8" family. Nothing out there in the aftermarket except for seals and bearings.

    Thanks for the clarification Devon. I guess I was just hoping for someone to make a short run for the 9 3/8 rear ends on our wildcats.

    On the 9 3/8 gear... The only way a run would happen is if there are enough interested parties to help pay for the gears. So If you can start sirring up interest in the gears and have people lay down some money ...And if the 3.42 gears go good I am sure Bard would not have any problem doing it also.

    YOU NEED real people with reaL MONEY...:) AIN'T THAT THE WAY IT ALWAYS WORKS...:Dou:

    So get that thread going and push if you want the gears. We did it once i am sure we can do it again. Jim

    On the 2.93 ratio. I will get the spacer thickness needed maybe tonight. Please do not be afraid to use a spacer for street cars and even some mild track duty. I have tested 12 bolt spacered rears at the track with slicks to 12.00 and have not had any issues. even used the stock c-clip GM tapered axle shafts too. Jim

    Gears are now in stock and ready for shipping. only about 12 set left.

    Brad set up a set of the 3.42 gears and they are just like the factory...PERIOD. Pattrern came out excellent , smooth and quiet jusy as they should be.

    All pre orders should be shipping with in the week. So you should have just what you want under the tree!!! :)

    They are USA gears forged and cut in Wisconsin. So support your economy and get that USA quality as it used to be. BUT better mix of metal then the old.

    Take care and I wish you all Happy Holidays!!!

    Stay safe!!

    No, these are only for the 68-70 Buick rears. Gears for a Chevy 12bolt are plentiful and cheap. Check out Summit or Jegs.
