    It's me again. Just going to upgrade my internals of my differential to a posi. I was shocked that my Caprice has a 7 1/2 ring gear??? My family has owned this car since new so I know it hasn't been changed and it came stock with the 350/350. I thought that size differential normally came in the 6-250 application? Just curious.
