    Um 45 divided by 12 is 3.75 not 3.73. But yeah you need lower gears. I have 36x14.50x15 TSL radials and 3.73 gears and it is to high of a gear. I need to get 4.56 gears for mine.

    I have been looking for this axle for the last year and a half. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif Now I'll have to find some 4.56s for it.
    Does anyone know where I can get new spring perches??

    Thanks guys. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I have a set but they're for a 3" tube (14 bolt is 3.5") you could make them work with a very small amount of grinding. I paid $18 at the local speed shop. I'd like $15 for them, that includes shipping. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif Let me know if you'd like them. My email is CrustyLBZ@aol.com Oh, I also have new shock tabs since you'll need to relocate those too. I'll add them in for another $10. -Rob- /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
