Are you buying a complete 3.45 diff or swapping the centers?

do it! i did the disc to disc conversion a few months back from a 3.08 to 3.45. car has better acceleration off the mark and is alot more predicable when its broadsiding

What's the difference between changing just the diff gears or the whole disc to disc?

dsheps83 i thought at u having a el fairmont ghia would mean that u had a 3.45 anyway?

do the convo its not that hard to do and u wont be disapointed.

him having a 3.08 wouldnt it mean that he would have to a disk to disk any way.
well thats what i thought.
3.45 gears wont fit in 3.08 housing??

and dont ya need certain tools when taking the insides out and putting others in? what about the cones never looked inside and lsd.

You get the XR engine? If so should've gotten the 3.45LSD to go with it.

Only the V8's got 3.23s
