    Im just about to order my gears and a detorit, I have a 14bolt with 3:73 gears in it now.Can I fit the 4:56 thick gears in it or do I need the 4:56 thin gears. Im thinking I would need a new carrier for the thick 4:56 correct? Also im assuming i need the Detoir for the 4:10 and lower carrier even with 4:56's right?

    Thank for any reply's

    Also on the EAton website it shows the detroit locker and a no spin locker, are these the same lockers? The detoit llockers ooks like a carrier where the no spin look like the one you put in the 14 bolt carrier. I assuming I should order the no spin correct?

    You need thick gears if you have a 3.73 carrier and a detroit fits any open 14bolt carrier.
