Default 4t60-e gear conversions?

http://60degreev6.com/modules.php?op...rtid=60&page=1
So according to this i can get a 3.33FDR just by changing my diff?
Anyone know if anythign needs to be altered to the p/* axle or anything?

from what is in that article it looks like you would just need the 3.33 diff since the chain is the same, but you would need the custom burn, for the speedo and other corrections

That'* a cool article.... he makes this all sound so easy. I say keep the same differential and get the underdrive gear set to give you the 3.43. It'd be harder to change, but sounds like maybe it would be cheaper?

This is true, this is true. and it would be a nice way to protect my tranny from getting random peices of diff sent through it from an accidental 1 wheel burn out in slippery conditions.
i gotta start looking for a part time summer job on top of my office space full time one. maybe manual labor to even things out....
