Default -96 camaro rear end gear change

1996 camaro v6 rear end gear and posi change
Hello
i have 1996 camaro 3.8 with 3.08 non posi (serie 2 carrie).
i bought 2000 SS 3.42 gear with posi (Torsen serie 3, with ABS ring).
what do I need to install? Whether bearing the same? Pinion bearing?

i looked at rockauto mounting kits and they had different #numbers 1996/2000

thanks, Sami (From Finland)

since it is a different carrier i would assume the bearing and everything would be different. If you look for parts i'd search under the 2000 year or whatever year the rear is from.

as for mounting the rear, it should bolt into place with no mods. however there is a concern for the rear brake pressure. I would look at this thread to get the full description for rear in swapping. basically to keep the balance of the front and rear pressure as it was set from the factory you need to put a pressure block or whatever its called on the rear lines to limit the pressure for the torsen rear..... unless you swap the rear brake assembly from your 3.08 to the 3.42 rear. then it doesn't matter.

the only draw back from using the 3.42 rear from a 2000 is the 4way abs. our 96's uses a 3way abs system and does not have the proper plugs for the 4way to hook up. there may be a way to fix this but i'd say that most people just deal with not having the ABS working.

if you are swapping just the carrier you only have to deal without the ABS system working. the ABS light will stay on and it will not try to prevent a lockup.

several people have swapped over to the torsen because it should handle more HP. i've heard no serious issues about the abs being non functional

you may be able to solve the ABS problem by swapping internals. I'm not sure. this gets beyond my knowledge on rears.
