215 diff gear options
I really want to get rid of the 2.65 gears my Charger has, what should I regear it to? Keep in mind is my daily driver and only car.

RE: 215 diff gear options
3.55's are awesome, however your hwy mileage will tank. 3.23 is a good gear and would be a huge improvement over your current gear.

I always liked 3.73 for street cars and that was with 3 speed automatics. I would not hesitate with overdrive autos used today.

RE: 215 diff gear options
3.73 would be close to 3k RPM at 70mph. Not that it is bad, just something to be aware of. Do you have 20" or 18" wheels?

20" rims, funny you mention that I was just playing with the f body gear calculator and found that with the 3.73's the rpms would be 2700, 3.55's would be 2400 and 3.23's would be 2200 at 70 mph.

RE: 215 diff gear options
Going to a 3:55 would be a major improvement over the 2:65 and still do decent on the highway.
