    Box is the same but the pitman is different. The steering ratio will be different. Casting numbers had no bearing on the internal ratio. There are no external numbers that reference the ratio.

    The 68-69 box will physically fit, but the steering feel will Nesbit different from stock, but you may not notice unless you did a quick side by side comparison. Is your 73 a Z or base model? They had different ratios with the Z having a quicker ratio (less turns lock to lock) and better road feel. The best GM box is considered to be a 76-77 Trans Am WS6 box. It had the non-metric hose fittings so the hoses would bolt up and the 13/16 splines for the same rag joint. The problem is you can't tell by the box numbers (casting or end cap) what you are getting cause they are all the same. Next best is generally considered to be the 70z box which is actually different than a 71 z box. But with anything 70z as you I'm sure know good luck finding and paying for it.

    Not sure if this helps:

    http://www.chevelles.com/techref/ftecref29.html

    But it does provide some info.

    I think what the spreadsheet says is your car had a WS ink stamp on the aluminum cover indicating the gear set. So this is the gears wryly are trying to match for the same steering feel.
