Re: 3.45 Differential install

Bill and 119C3NJ- I am not looking for a coupler. I am looking for the prop shaft to coupler BOLTS and NUTS. There are 6 total on every car and those part numbers were not given in the GM system for the Caprice. The bolts and nuts were shown, but there were no part numbers. These bolts are definitel...

Re: 3.45 Differential install

Here are some pics to hopefully make it a little more clear. Note that the second pic is for a 2011 Camaro. Part numbers for the prop shaft to coupler bolts and nuts did not show up for the Caprice. The parts guy said that you would need to buy the entire prop shaft assembly to get the nuts and bolt...

Re: 3.45 Differential install

Bill, There are 6 bolts at each end. There are two different types of bolts at the front and two different types at the rear. The ones you mentioned at the rear are the coupler to diff bolts that get no nuts (they thread directly into the diff). That part number has not seemed to change in a long ti...

Re: 3.45 Differential install

Does anyone know the part numbers for the driveshaft to coupler bolts and nuts for the front (transmission side)? These are the hex head bolts, not the torx.

Re: Spectre cold air intake 9017

Toss a gopro camera or something similar in the engine compartment and close the hood. It will give you a pretty good idea of where you need to improve the seal. Moving it up a little bit might be all that you need to do, which is the case with the RotoFab. Where does it pull air from? Most of the "...

Re: 3.45 Differential install

On the same note, G8 early production had wheel nut torque of 125 lb-ft, and PPV has always called for 140 lb-ft, as has all other Zetas since Gen5 Camaro, with exact same wheel studs. Maybe that's a good indication that all of this torque spec and fastener stuff is not that critical after all. I m...

Re: 3.45 Differential install

That's odd. Post No. 6 here by Crazy Paul indicates that the 92139104 bolts get torqued to 85 lb ft. Any idea why there's a discrepancy?

Re: 3.45 Differential install

I'm not Maurice, but I used the Caprice coupler when I installed my Camaro diff. It mated to the Camaro diff exactly like it mated to the Caprice diff. There was no difference. I don't remember having to support the LCA with a jack. Actually, I had to force it down. This is really an easy bolt in sw...

Re: Radiator fans are loud

Looks like the tabs at the top may hold it together. Zoom into the pic below. You may be able to bend them to get it apart. Note the reverse threads on the shaft.
