The 12 bolt was discontinued after 1972. Twelve bolt rear ends wear
originally used only in cars with 300hp and up. The newer 10 bolt rear ends,
such as are currently used, are unrelated to the 10 bolt rear axles from the
60's and are much stronger. - Gary
I have a chance to buy a 12 bolt Camaro rearend for $100 with internals, but
the owner doesn't know what year it is. I'm still waiting on pictures of it
to make sure it is a Camaro Rearend and not a Chevelle. I got the codes off
the housing from him, but I can't find codes that match so I'm a little
skeptical about it.
I realized that but I was curious how many different years had the 12 bolt
patterns. Knowing that would help me limit the years that this Rearend was
made in. I have been looking for one, for my 69 Z/28 Camaro ( I sold the
original 12 bolt that was in it, like a dumbass when I was in high school,
now I'm paying the price for it). But the price this guy is offering is
unbeatable because I can't find you for under $800.
