so if i got the 5 speed can i just order the 3.64 gears
Yes you can, but from a dealer this can be very expensive. I think that you could check you local bone yard to see if they have any low mileage 300's or Magnums. These cars when equipped with 2.7L v-6 came from the factory with 3.64's and in my opinion this is the way to go, unless of course you don't mind spending your money on a new carrier. Good Luck!

HEMI: (HEM-e) adj. Mopar in type, V8, native to United States. Carnivorous, eats primarily Mustangs, Camaros and Corvettes. Also enjoys smoking a good import now and then to relax.
Check out Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market nationwide database of junk yards. 2.7's came with 3.92 gears which were available(double the price, but still not a bad deal) but we thought it would be too steep. Some 3.5 lx's came with 3.64. I used to have a 2007 sxt charger and it had the 2.87's. Make Sure ratio printed on the diff is correct. When I went to the yard the first one they pulled was a 2.87. Their part guy didn't check before he pulled it and wasted his time. Oh well. Check the seals as well. But they can be replaced for cheap from a dealer.

I think I may just go with an SRT 3.06. But then it involves a lot more swapping out. Do you guys know if I then need to change the brakes as well to an SRT set up? Since the axles need to be changed I beleive the hubs do also.

Man, this is looking more complicated.
You do not need to change your brakes. Plenty of guys run an srt setup on an r/t and se/sxt. All hubs Will fit On all spindles. You need axles, rear half of srt driveshaft, and pumpkin. You do not need to change your hubs unless your diff is a getrag. (thats for r/t, im not 100 percent about the v6 hubs, i think they are all the same except for the getrag)If you buy a 3.06 open differential you just need axles, pumpkin and rear half of driveshaft and the coupler that goes along with it(4 bolt).You would need new hubs for a getrag. But you won't need a rear half of the driveshaft for the 09+ it is the same 3 bolt flange. A new 392 coupler is highly recommended(3 bolt)
Make sure if you buy the axles used they come with tone rings(functional) If not just buy new axles as new ones come with them.
Your best bet it to call a vendor. I've been doing a ton of research for my r/t and I do not want to give out bad info to the v6 crowd in regards to hubs and driveshaft. Once you confirm with a vendor then you could try and piece it together with used parts or buy all brand new.

Ok, that sounds better. And I can always contact DiabloSport to see if they can add a 3.06 option for me on the Predator.
I think the predator has the option as awd had a 198mm 3.07. Best bet is to get a nice 3.64 or 3.92 198mm. Yeah LSD's are sweet but they are expensive even used. As for upgrading the axles unless you slap a blower on and run juice I don't think you'll snap an axle. You need a Ton of low end to snap an axle unless you race a lot and launch with slicks I don't think it will be an issue. Has anyone snapped a v6 axle? No disrespect intended it might not be worth the money.
Now as far as disrespect .... it's all good., Besides I'm running 11 lbs. of boost and a 50 shot at the track .... no issues yet, Traction however that's a different story
