Also I still need to find the gears so if anyone reads this and has stuff they wanna sell for cheap let me know. thanks a bunch /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    yes, the gears will fit either the front or the rear. no you shouldnt need a new carrier, yes spend the money to have them professionaly installed. not to doubt your ability, this is just one of those things best left to the pros

    travelling, probably lost
    I just finished this...as of today...front and rear the same, carrier will work, and having them proffesionally installed is the answer...all said and done, complete front and rear including all new except the housings, got them used from junkyard, including labor and lockers, brakes, hubs, etc...I'm at 1600.00 give or take a hair... /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif, also, going from 3.73 I'm not sure you will tell much of a difference to 4.10's, might wanna consider 4.56...I went 3.73 to 4.56 and am very pleased... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Well here is the reason behins the move. I got my self a pick-up that didnt have a lift on it. It is 3/4 ton. So A freind had a suburban he was parting out that had a 6" lift on it . It too was 3/4 ton. but the front axel on it was bent. We knew for a fack that it had 4.10's in it and i thought mine pick-up did too. So to make the lift swap go quiker we just decded to take the lift out with the rear end in order to save time and work. but in the front i had to keep my origanal axel which i thought had the 4.10's in but didnt. so i now have suberban rear axel (4.10)and pickup front axel(thoughht to be 4.10 but actually 3.73) So im just trying to even out the deal . How confusing was that?!?!?!Man I suck at explaining things!!! sorry but thanks a bunch!

    Sounds like a good deal.All you need to do is some wrench work and be set to go. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    All cariers are not the same. They is a split in them, but you only run into it in cars. The split is 2.56 and numerically lower, and 2.73 and numerically higher. So, you will not need a new cariers. I always reccomed new gears, because you can never set gears up the same way twice, and pay a trained person to install them.

    Now about this hole profesional install deal, Sence they are going in the front and I only have 33 inch tires. Can I just set the gears up close and just make sure they spin easy but dont have exesive play in them??? Or is this a totaly bad idea?
