Steve I think he`s talking of third member drop out, no they are not the same unless a previous ower had changed out the rear axle assembly.

But if your staying with 6 lug you can use anything up to `69 model year, complete axle assembly, you might have to do some trimming of extra metal from the axle housing and add springs pads to it, you can get the pads from summit for it...

Could not find where to create a new thread so here goes my question.

Anyone put a T5 in a 1970 GMC with a 350. I am pondering changing out the Turbo 350 to a T5. What years of parts will fit against the 350CI.

Also thinking about putting in a Jag rear-end with inboard brakes and then changing the front spindles to a 5 lug disc setup, but that is for another thread I guess.

Thanks for reading.

As I have an automatic in it now, I am going to need everything to convert it to a manual. Thinking a T-5 should work just fine behind a stock 350CI.

Any stock T-5 items/parts that will just bolt in? Someone sell a kit? Figure that I might use a hydraulic master and slave rather than a stock type clutch linkage unless someone has a kit that will just bolt right in.

Although a standard 4 speed and stock Chevy/GMC parts would be fine. Was just thinking about it being nice to have an overdrive.
