    I have not seen any, but do they exist?

    I have found a wide enough D 70 I would like to use. It has a Power Lock, but the wrong gears. This thing is geared 4.10, and I would like to use 4.56's.

    Is it possible to do without getting a new carrier, or should I just keep looking for one with the right gears?

    Hey long time no see. Do they just make thick gears like they do for a D60 and 14B? I think those are a better idea than a spacer anyway.

    I'm pretty sure the break-over point for the carrier on a D70 is 4.56, but I'm not positive. Pretty sure it's 4.10 and down, and 4.56 and up.

    I have only seen ring gear spacers for 10 bolts and the D60. Not to say you couldn't make one, tho.
