8.8" in a sixxer or nah?
Alright so hear me out. My ring and pinion gears went out about a year ago and so I replaced them with 4.10's (mines an auto). But I had them installed by some shop that usually doesn't do anything other than oil changes and alignments and the dude ended up charging me $750 to do it after quoting me at $250!!!! In the end, the stupid things cost me over $1000, which is just outrageous.
I'm not sure if the gears were set incorrectly or whatever but now I'm hearing the same noise as I did prior to installing the 4.10's. Anyways... I'm thinking about buying the 8.8" rear end (entire assembly) from a salvaged 2001 GT that had under 100K miles on it. The only hangup is that it had a manual tranny. My question here is will the manual gears in that 8.8" work with my automatic? And if not, will simply changing gears allow it to work in conjunction with my transmission?
