    I just put 33's on my 86 K5. I want to change the gears to either 4.11 or 4.56. I have the stock NP208, 700R4, and 10 bolt rearend. Will 4.11 and 4.56 gears work with a 10-bolt? I'm not sure what gears I have for the front, but will I have to change those as well?

    You can buy those gear ratios for a 10-bolt diff. The bad news is that yes, you will have to change the gears in both the front and rear axles if you want to be able to use your 4WD. [​IMG]
