    Ok, i want to upgrade my 3.07 to 4.11 and i was told i need a ring gear spaacer. i found some used 4.11's for $35 and the spacer is another $30. Does this sound all right?

    Used for 35, not a bad price. What did they come out of? You have to know for sure cause the gear split is 3.56 and up. There are 2 different series carriers depending on original ratio. I put Richmonds in mine, the ring gear came as a thicker gear to fit the series 3 case (3.08 originally). You can use a spacer to bring the gear out, I think some manufacturers sell them that way? any way, for 65 bucks, you may not get the right stuff. Don't forget bearings and shims set up stuff and all the other costs too. HTH

    Check out this link they mention not to use spacers with gears. <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.ring-pinion.com/GearTalk.html>http://www.ring-pinion.com/GearTalk.html</A> I think its in the carrier question.
