Changing rear end gears
New here....I owned a 1978 approx. 15 years ago but ended up selling to a friend. Have always regretted it and now looking to replace it with something near the same age. Actually, would love to get a C2....but you can't always get what you want....and still love the C3's.
I am looking into buying a 1981 with four speed but want to change the gears in the rear end. Seems someone changed the OEM to a more aggressive ratio and the car runs extremely high RPMs on the highway. I would like to return it to a more stock ratio.
Is this a major job? Costly? I might be willing to tackle it myself with some help from friends....but may just have to take it to a mechanic.
