    Hi guys,
    Which size is the original rear axle of a '71 Riviera? Is it 8,2" ?

    If you take a picture of yours and post it here, someone can ID what you have. Beyond that I don't think those came with an 8.2. It would be bigger, same as what came in full size cars.

    I think they're only available with the 455 and the 12 bolt?
