    Well, i've already gotten the 4:56 gears for the rear of my suburban installed, but i've yet to get the gears for the front differential.

    I had completely forgotten to ask the guy at the Differential shop, if there was a difference in the 4:56 gears in the rear compared to the front. Do i have to get a special reverse cut Ring and Pinion for the front differential? Or do i just use any 4:56 ring and pinion? Does the transfercase change the direction of the front driveshaft ?

    The truck has a 10 bolt corporate front diff.

    A 10-bolt is a 10-bolt is a 10-bolt (as long as it'a a full size).

    The only thing that changes is the axle spline counts and that doesn't matter to you.
