    I have a 12 bolt rear end and dana 44 front off a 76 blazer, and i know you use thick gears for the 12 bolt, so do you also use thick gears in the dana 44 front end. I want to put 4.88 gears in them.

    Thick gears do not exist for standard rotation Dana Axles. You'll have to get a new Carrier.

    thick gears do exist for this dana 44, and i need to know that when doing 4.88 gears you can use thick gears, so you don't have to get a new carrier
