Can anyone weigh in on this one?

There has been a ton of recalls on theses diffs. V or non-V.

The cases flex and create leaking and whining conditions to the point of failure.

There are several companies developing CNC Bille Steel cases, but they are still under testing and I can assume will cost in the $3-5k range.

I would assume the camaro's diff is going to be of similar design. I have even heard that they are the exact same.

I cannot find anything as of yet from AAM.

Not sure, but I think the Zeta IRS is a different design.

I sure hope so, but I remember this time last year reading about them possibly being the same.

How is yours holding up?

I haven't had any trouble out of mine.
My car is still under waranty, so if I had a problem it would be at the dealer.

NO warranty here, but only 37,000 miles and I do not beat on it from a dead stop!

70,000 miles here and I beat on it every chance I get. I have it to the floor almost everytime I take off from a dead stop.:D Still got 30k left on the waranty.

^ what he said. and GTO rear ends are pretty good. they do have their weaknesses tho... but i've heard they are better than the CTS rears *DNR* ;)

Ive heard of GTO owners replacing their rear axles or "Stub Hub" do to them breaking. Wheel hop (from the M6) is the one reason I will test drive the A6

4thgen

My uncle has a 4thgen and over 100k on it with no problems at
all, and he drives that Camaro hard. Its an automatic.
The 5thgen will be tough, from all i have read on this
site.:5go:

Was there a recall on this rear end? Might explain why both of the rear wheel bearings went bad on my dad's '04 CTS w/ 3.6L

No, there are some that are leaking from the start.

The regular CTS' are having alot of problems as well. The large problem is that the case is weak and flexes TOO much.

Granted a right foot can aleve some of the problems, but there is a inherent problem.

On a side note, arober68, a 4th gen camaro has nothing to do with the new Camaro or a CTS.
