    currently in my dana 60 is a 4.10 open carrier. I'm going to put in 5.13's and know I need the 4.56 up carrier. I'm also just gonna lincoln lock it. So can I just buy this empty open 4.56 and up carrier carrierhttp://www.drivetrainspecialists.com/categories/dana/dana-60/products/product-629.html
    and put the spiders from the 4.10 and down carrier I already have into the new one. Or will they be different and I need to get the new loaded carrierhttp://www.drivetrainspecialists.com/categories/dana/dana-60/products/product-713.html

    All of the iternals are the same I.E sidegears and spiders. The only difference between the carriers is the ring gear mounting flange location.

    ok I just noticed that the link I used above is for 30spline and I need 35 spline which DTS doesn't seem to have. Does anybody have a part number for an empty 4.56 and up non-posi carrier or can point to a place that carries them?

    Not 100% but I am pretty sure the side gears are the same size just the inner diameter and spline count is different. I am almost positive the empty carriers can change out between 30 and 35 spline.

    Just give them a call. I'm sure they can get you what you need.

    there is always the ring gear spacer from summit (or wherever) that turns a 4.10 carrier into a 4.56 carrier.

    Empty case fits both 30 and 35 spline.
