I know this subject has come up before but for some reason I can’t find it. My differencial is leaking oil and cannot be used because of the accident it was in. I have a 04 SSR with auto, I have found a 05 SSR diff with manual. What needs to be done if I want to buy and install the 05 manual diff in my 04 auto, just the drive shaft difference?
Thanks

If you haven't already, use the google custom search feature at the top of the page. That should get you what you want to know.

SSR manual diff should be a bolt in with the exception of the u-joint/driveshaft difference. No reprogramming needed.
The main difference is the current rear has a Torsen set of gears that act like a post whereas the manual is a true post. The manual will stand up to more abuse for sure. Also, both came with 3.73 gears.

I believe the Manual Rear differential is the same as the Trailblazer SS rear differential except for the ABS sensors
and the rear yoke requires a larger diameter u-joint. You will also need to reprogram to get speedo and shift points correct

See the following for information regarding u joints

Yes and no, Trailblazer SS rear end comes with 4:10 gears and not the 3:73.

The SSR 6 speed/14 bolt comes with 3:73 gears as hdflstf said.

ALL OEM SSR have 3:73 gears in rear end.
