    I have an ARB up front in my D44 and I want to put 4.56 in it. It currently has 3.73's, Will I be able to use the same locker?

    yeah start crossing part #'s but i am afraid it will require a new carrier. Maybe not though I hear that there are ring gear spacers you can buy. I know that when petersens built there superduty up they had to shim the ring gear because it was too thin for proper contact. The diameter is no different but the thickness is.

    Hey, just think, 1 month of working the weekend at the part time job should get you a D60. Probably even find one w/4:56's
    Sell off that pipmpin D44 and get you a detroit or ARB for the 60 and you're set /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
