Hey guys, Im a newb here. I just bought a light green on green Caprice 2 door with 60K miles, original paint car.It still has plastic on the rear seats!!!!. It has been garage kept its whole life. It has not been driven in 2 years due to a faulty master cylinder. In going to service the rear differential, this thing has a BOP 8.2 rear end under it. It has no c clips and no stamp numbers on the axle tube. There is a metal tag that has 2.41 stamped into it, so I know that is the stock ratio. Im 99% sure the diff in the car is original due to the amount of factory coating on it matches the rest of the undersides.
Question: Is this correct????? Did they use the BOP diff in some of these cars? It is not posi and the car is a 305 2 barrel engine. I have not found anything for sure on the use of these differentials in these cars.
Cant post pics yet, but will try when Im here long enough, Thanks, Mike Kise
