Yes, you will be able to ge the Z51 with an auto.

It will come with a performance rear diff ratio.

Yup, but not with the performance rear end. Plus they deleted one of the oil coolers too.

In 1997 the Z51($350 option) came with the performance rear end. The performance rear end($100 option) was also available to those that did not want the Z51 package but wanted the extra "dig".

I do believe that in 2006 and 2007, the performance rear end was not available with the Z51, but I believe it was a two year thing, and the performance rear end was reinstated for 2008.

May have been. I wasn't following it as my Z51 C6 was an '07.
