Default Do Z51 C6's with the automatic transmission come with 3.42s?

I am buying a 07 C6 with the F55 magnetic ride because I want the adjustability and smoother ride over the Z51 after owning a C5 with Z51. I was just wondering if the Z51 with the 6 speed auto's come with 3.42 gears like the MN6? I found the exact car I want and it comes with the bigger crossdrilled brakes and I am going to do either Z51 or Z06 swaybars once I get it but just wondering about the gears.

And I dont care about Z51 this and that or how much cooler they are or anything about badges. I am not going to be installing any retarded aftermarket badges on my corvette. Also the only thing I need to know is about the gears...I know about the rest of the Z51 package. I know how these Z51 threads can get out of hand

thanks

You are correct.... and don't let the 2.56's scare you... I went 12.1 at almost 117 mph with a pure stock 08 with the 2.56's
