Gear question.

If I'm swapping ring and pinion on stock housing do I need an install kit? Or will new 4.56 gears work with existing equipment ?

You will need Master Installation Kits.
Lube Locker gaskets.
Gear oil.
Front carrier, but only if you currently have the 3.21 ratio.

Why not just purchase all of this from your gear shop installer. This way you will have warranty on the complete install.

Just make sure that it is a experienced gear installation shop and get a copy of their warranty in writing.

When you say existing equipment are you also asking about your carrier? If so we need to know your current gearing
