Im not to familiar with the camaro rearend. All ive messed with is metrics. My buddy broke an axel and also cracked his carrier. Is there another rearend that we could use the carrier and axle out of? its a 8.5 10 bolt.

I think the carrier and axles will need to come from a Camaro/Nova/Firebird.
I recently bought some aftermarket axles and i got a set for a 10 bolt 8.5 ring gear - they would not go into my carrier. The Camaro axle is 28 spline,I learned that the others have 31 splines.
There are different carriers out there too. If you get a carrier and end up with a 1/4" backlash, you can order a spacer from Jegs that will move the ring gear inward.
