Ok...so i decided NOT to upgrade my 8.2 as it will just cost more than i want. I have the list of vehicles with posi and a list with gear ratios, to search local junkyards.

My main question is , is there a complete list of vehicles that have the 8.5in 10 bolt that will directly fit my 69 chevelle? After searching 9 out of 18 pages of threads the search gave me, i came up with 70-72 monte carlo , 71-72 Cutlass and Skylark , and some 71-72 chevelle but rare. anything else ? or at least anything that requires minor modifications ,without having to spacers for wheels. My rims are completely stuffed in my well. 295/60/15. I have 1/4inch to frame and same to outer fender.

How about the 71-72 Pontiac Lemans, if you happen to live near Binghamton NY there is a 1972 Lemans in Gary's you pull it right now with an 8.5 open rear. They will torch it out for you for a small fee plus the cost of the the rear itself and its yours.

i don't think the 70-72 Montes or Chevelles had the 8.5 in them. but i think most of the BOP derivatives had one.
