    These are all 8 lug - I had always thought that the 4.10 geared 3/4 ton stuff was fairly common and that the 3.73 and 4.56 geared versions were optional, making them more rare. Is this true or am I mis-informed?


    The reason I asked is that my friend has a 14FF(open)/10 bolt combo that is 3.73 geared. I said he could use an extra set that I've got, but they are 3.73 also(only difference is that mine is a Gov-lok), is this common?

    My 3/4 ton axle also have 3.73 gears. I've got some 4.56 gears for my 14 bolt FF, hopefully I'll be able too find a D60 with 4.56 gears. I'll probley run the 3/4's with the 3.73's till then.

    3.73 is almost as common as 4.10, but not quite.

    4.56 3/4 tons are out there (I would think) but I've never seen one.

    The set in my K20 (14FF and D44) are 4.56 from the factory, even the glove box sticker matches.
