    the carrier size is smaller but if you get 5.13 thick gears it will not be a problem :D

    Maybe somebody can post a link for thick, standard-cut, Dana 60 gears? :whistle:

    You can use a ring gear spacer to put 5.13s on the 4.10-down Detroit. The ratio break is 4.10/4.56 for the diff cases.

    Exactly :waytogo: ... there are NO thick gears for a standard rotation D60. You either have to have the correct locker/carrier, or use a spacer.
