The break is 3.55 and above so if you have 3.55 then you shouldn't have to.

I keep editing and re-editing my post bc I keep confusing myself more n more. I'm inclined to believe that the larger carrier goes from 3.73 to 4.88

Well now I know!

I had to swap my carrier out when I went from 3.07's to 4.10's but I didn't have the 3.55's.
