5.43-5.38?

I am wondering if i have a 5.43 rear end and a 5.38 front if this will cause major issues?

I always thought they needed to match, but that is not much difference. As long as your not in 4WD on a hard surface, it should be ok.

Where did you find those gear ratio's?

:chair: My God, He asked a question and yet nobody gave him an answer.... Gotta love the internet!! To ANSWER your question, You will be fine. the 9 has some interesting ratios due to the fact it was used alot in Drag racing. You most likely wont even notice it at all.
