    The carrier break for D60's is -4.10 & 4.56+.

    Unless you have a hi-pinion axle you will need a new carrier.

    They don't make thick gears for the low pinion D60 :(

    This is true...

    You'll either need a spacer or you can do what I did... get a detroit locker for the lower gears. :D
