When I get the LSD put in, how difficult would it be to have them swap out the RL's final drive with the Cobalt's? Rl is 4.05:1 and the SS is 3.94:1
That's what I figured. The cobalt's is a little shorter, I edited my previous post to reflect the ratios.05IsAlive said:I believe all of that has to come apart anyway, so it should just be the cost of the parts, plus maybe an additional hour of labor, which, when you're going to be paying 2,000+ already, really doesn't make that much difference. What is the cobalt final drive vs. redline final drive? I though the redlines were like 4.10 or something like that. I'm assuming you want shorter gearing, but how much shorter are the cobalts?

Roger ThatBlu_Redline said:... and I think that I read somewhere that the only other final drive ratio for our trans currently is like in the mid 3s. That would turn the Red Line into a 16 second wonder, but top end would be close to 170 MPH or there abouts.
