Designed to stiffen up the main cap area, the housing flex of the differential is reduced, increasing gear life and minimizing ring deflection. The bowtie emblem is prominently displayed with a precision CNC-milled finish, and the covers include two bearing main cap stabilizing bolts. They are available for 7.5 GM, 8.2/8.5 GM (10-bolt) and passenger car (12-bolt) rear housings.
