View Full Version : 3.55gears

I have a 95 sc 5-speed with 3.55 gears ,I think the RPM's are too high for driving on the highway. I'd like to go with 3.27 but I don't want to spend more money for gears ,my brother has 98 mark VIII lsc with 3.27 . 80,000 on odometer. He offered me these gears for free because he wants my 3.55 . What do you guys think that's going to be good swap

It would be a good swap. Is the LSC limited slip? That would be the only question. For normal street driving I actually prefer 3.08's.

Thanks Dave. Mark VIII has no limited-slip but I only want to change rocker & pinion not whole pumpkin

IMO that is way too much work. If you don't get the gears set up right in there they will howl and the change from 3.55-3.27 will be just barely noticeable.

thanks Dave for your opinion I know it's a lots of work but my brother is a mechanic ,I have a couple months before spring time and I will see what we can do.
