SGS is second gear start.
I think traction control is what reduces power if the rear wheels start spinning

They are different things SGS should only be used in poor traction conditions like ice/snow or heavy heavy rain if you are having traction issues off a stop... or If you decide to drive your camaro off in a field SGS may help you get out.

I read in another thread here that you took it to a shop and they said the rear is shot... What did they say the exact failure was? If it was the ring gear that's fixable but if the rear grenaded the entire rear is basically shot. Generally with rear end failures in these cars the cheapest and easiest way to fix it is to find a new rear. Not sure about your area but where I live people are always selling fbody 10bolt rear ends on CL.

I believe he said it was the latter,checking CL here but don't see much....what should i expect to pay for one?? i agree about just finding a new rear cuz he told me the cost to try to rebuild is mor labor hrs and such

Just for clarification, ASR is acceleration slip regulation. Its meant for sporty driving conditions as opposed to poor traction conditions like SGS. Actually, I believe in Pontiacs it's called TCS. But it's the same thing as ASR
