    373\'s on a 14 bolt carrier that has 342\'s

    this 14 bolt i have has 342's, will 373's work? i know that 456's will require some kind of adapter, so if 373's also do, i would rather have the 456's...know what i mean!!! thanks...

    If i remember correctly, (i seem to say this at the beginning of all my posts) , the full floating 14 bolt only has one carrier, which will take all the gear setsdown to at least 4.10, or for 4.56 a "thick" gear set, if im wrong then you should still be able to get a "Thick" gear set. I have a thick set of 4.10s in my 12 bolt which replaced the 3.07s. I remember seeing a listing the 4Wheel parts Catalog a few years ago, Either way you shouldn't need to change carriers. Call one of the gear houses, like, Reider, Randy's, or West Coast Diff. They should give you the straight poop.

    thanks RK5, i called WCD the other day, and i guess "thick" is what he meant, since it was quite a bit more, i thought is was something else...i didnt ask for the 373's, it popped in my mind today....thanks again
