    Went to a local junk yard last week and found a 1973 Riviera GS . The rear axle was still under the car along with the sway bar and boxed arms. No posi tag. What ratio is it? 3:42

    Anybody interested in this? I can check price.

    73 Riv GS was 2.93 standard ratio and 3.23 if it had the performance optioned rear. If it had the stage 1 option it would be 3.23 standard.

    Jim is correct. I really preferred the 3.23 for driving the car.

    What is a fair price for this with the control arms? I will call and check price.

    When I was looking for one, I would've paid a grand for it. Assuming it's in good shape...
