3 camaro z28: friend of mine has a rear diff gears out of a 76 vette

This answer was rated:

I have a 1987generation 3 camaro z28. It had a 305 in it and I transplanted in a 350. A friend of mine has a rear diff gears out of a 76 ''vette. It is a locker.He says that the gears are 4.56:1. What do i need to do to get these gears into my generation 3?
these gears may not be the same size therefor will not work-measure the ring gears-i think you will find out that the camaro is smaller than the vettes ring gear-if they are different then the gears wont fit your case-if they are the same size count the ring gear bolts-if they are the same then it will work-you will need several special tools to do this swap
