I will be pulling a rear end off a junk yard 82-92 camaro/firebird to put on my 91 Camaro, and was wondering what hand tools would be required to do this so I dont have to take my entire tool box with me.

Would it be possible to get a listing of these?

There's no publication that compiles such a list. Look at your car to see what will be needed but you can be sure there are going to be things you don't have but wish you did.

You'll need a box wrench for the u-joint bolts, commonly a 3/8". A screwdriver to pry the u-joint out. A 1/2" drive long handle ratchet or breaker bar and a deep six point socket to fit the nuts and bolts for the control arms. Look at what it will take to disconnect the parking brake cables from whichever end you plan on doing that, and you'll need to disconnect the rubber brake flex hose and pull the clip that holds it to the bracket. Plan on a needle nose pliers and a 3/8" or 7/16" flare nut wrench. Don't forget the socket to remove the wheels.
