Hello all, I need some help with rearends fast!!!!!!!! I drive a 83 metric monte with stock 7.5 rearend, lost the gears last sat. at the track and having trouble finding more at the salvage yard. Looking for a 2.56 , or 2.73 rear gear Need them before this sat!!!!! Please help, what ALL vehicle had these that would interchange, or do you have any that i could purchase (fairly cheap i hope) Again I need them as soon as possible, might could wait a few weeks and throw a set of 2.41 in there for now but would hate to, please respond. Thanx for any help!

Look on ebay. I have seen TONS of them here lately. Maybe email one of the sellers (most of them own their own junk yard and they may be willing to sell you one without going through ebay). Its worth a shot.

2.56's are harder to find then 2.73's. I dont know the RPO code off hand, but the 2.73 are more common in the station wagons with a v-6.....

Do a GOOGLE search for RPO codes on the metric cars and see what you find

As far as what vehicles you can look in, try S-10/S-15 pickups, Camaro's and Firebirds, any metric and newer caprices.
