GM 10 bolt 8.2

The GM 10 bolt 8.2 gear is smaller than the GM 12 bolt 8.875 gear. These dimensions refer to the ring gear diameters (the 8.2 dimension is really 8.125) and as you might expect, the larger the ring gear, the better tooth contact between the ring and pinion.

However the reason people build these for drag racing is that it takes less power to move a smaller ring and pinion. If you use high quality parts, and set it up correctly, it will serve you well.

To improve the strength of the 10-bolt would be to upgrade the axles, and the ring gear. Aftermarket GM 10 bolt 8.2 gears are made to be stronger than OEM gears. Also with a new master rebuild kit, which comes with Timken bearings, will ensure greater strength and durability.
