Quick Gearing Question

Guys and Gals,

Well.. I was reviewing my parts order today from 4wheel parts and noticed something that is little peculiar..

They list the front axle as Dana 30 Superior Gears 4:56 and the Dana 44 rear Superior gears were listed as 4:55.. Is this going to be a problem? I spoke with the guys at 4 wheel parts and they said it would not be whatsoever, but I figured I would discuss it with you guys "The Brain Trust" before I begin to complain..

Thanks for any responses.. I really want to make sure everything is perfect with this install as I am dumping a truck load of cash into lockers, gears, axles, etc.

Timber

Shouldn't cause you any grief. I had 4.11's installed in the back and 4.10's installed in the front. Only time the two ever meet is when you are in 4wd. And even then one moves at .01 slower than the other.

Had my gears now for over 4 years and never even noticed (in fact, forgot until you posted )

Sorry about that rketr.. I just wanted to make sure everything is to be installed correctly.
