I have 3.42 gears in my 14 bolt FF, if I want to go to 4:56 and up do I need a different carrier.
yep you do unless you get thick gears. The break is 4.10 and down numericly and 4.56 and up numericly.
You've actually got the ideal carrier to do this.
What you need to buy is 4.56 THICK gears (as stated above). Odd thing is, these seem to be more plentiful than the "regular" 4.56 gears. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
are the thick gears stronger?
Not really...the ring gear is thicker to make up the difference between the two carriers. But ring gears don't usually break in half, the teeth shear off, and there's no difference in the teeth between the thick and regular ring gears.
Separate names with a comma.
