all caprices are 2.92's

guess the guibo's(rubber u-joints) are different between them
My V6 is 4.10
you best crawl under your car and read the diff tag , its 2.92

GM did not offer any different ratios in the caprice , and there was no swapable diff sold in the US with 4.10s

you could be thinking of your FIRST gear ratio
I must be mistaken. I think I had gotten that ratio from the RPO but I must have looked it up incorrectly or not understood what it meant.

that could be possible , if they came with 4.10's a large groups of the V8s would be swapping to them , lol

I will be under my car later tonight to confirm it’s 2.92. It was code GW8 that I searched and it came back as 4.10. I’m assuming I’m interpreting the code wrong, This is my first experience having to swap a diff.

im not sure if they got their info wrong or if they are referencing only US codes , and thinking they are the same as the AU codes , i googled your code and see why you are thinking that

here is a copy of the GM build sheet for my 14 caprice , same rpo code
