Default Will these gears work in a c5?

I have a set of 373's that I purchase for my 99 z28. I since traded the car and bought a c5. I was wondering what rear end the c5 has such as if it is the same 10 bolt and if I will be able to use the gears?

Be glad they will not fit. You have a much better rear.

We carry the C5 gears for the Getrag diff, and no the F-body will not fit.

C5 stronger rear I blasted mine into several peices with simple wheel hop launching with Nittos. I should dig those pics up. Get a brace for the rear it will save you a ton of money later with the C5. I have a set of 3.73's gears and pinion from that rear that is still good. Rodney at RPM pulled it apart when I yanked my hardened shaft. He said they were still good. PM me if you are interested.

Not to be rude.... But did you seriously ask if a C5 has a 10 bolt rear? Have you ever looked under the car... You should try that from time to time see whats under there really amazing stuff.. Just giving you a hard time... I wouldn't say the C5 rear is better in every way, I would rather have a 10 bold for drag racing than the C5 diff... Solid rear axle is better for drag racing.
