Was there only one axle ratio available on the 69Z or was it the same ratios as the other Camaros?

I've only seen the standard 3.73 and the optional 4.10. The little 302 had no torque and needed a good gear to get moving.

You could order any of the ratio's that Chevrolet had available. I've seen a Z28 with the 2.73 rear a few years ago. I've seen 3.55, 3.73, 4.10, 4.56 etc. The 3.73 was standard though.

my 69Z has an original M20 wide ratio and 3:55's this is a neat setup it comes off the line great due to the low er 1st gear and still crusies freeway speeds without turning too fast.... gears are more evenly spaced also

keepin' it original 69Z

Thanks All! That's what I thought. Someone tried to tell me that only 3:73 were in Zs. I have a numbers matching(build date) 4:10 in mine.

Thanks again.

Thumbs up

the 4.10 was an option over the 3.73 that cost a whopping $2.15 (of course that's in 1969 dollars)
