Rear end gear ratios: What is high vs low?
I have a 72 Nova w an Lt1 350 with a th350 (3500stall). I am not familiar with rear ends at all. Only one tire spins.
I would like to get a posi and figure out what gear ratio I have. Can I do this without counting the teeth?
Can I buy some type of gear that will lock the axles together? Is that a bad idea vs. finding a stock posi rear end?
I do not have a tach so i can't tell you my estimated speed vs. RPM, but I don't want something too low, I'd like to travel south with the car sometime.
What is a good high gear ratio that still has some bite at takeoff?
I appreciate your time and opinions.
