1 point difference in ratio is equal to 1%. To find the percentage difference in ratios it is necessary to divide, not subtract. In order to find the difference divide one ratio by the other and look at the numbers to the right of the decimal point and how far they make the answer different from 1.00. for example 3.54 3.50 = 1.01 or 1%, not 4% different. And likewise 4.11 4.09 = 1.005 or only a 1/2% difference. These differences are about the same as a 1/3" variation in front to rear tire height which probably happens more often than we realize.

My question is just why do it? Axles already geared? What's the advantage or why do you want to do that? Not busting balls...just asking.


Oh and I ran 3.07s up front and 4.56s out back for a few months.....minus the front drive shaft....but YES it can be done! lol, j/k

Geared at 4.88s. 2.5l planning on doing a stretch I want to run 37s. So I need to do a different axle up front. So I will probably go waggy 44 with 5.89s or 5.38s. Not sure yet. Debating on whether or not to sell my 8.8 and do a different axle in the rear as well.

Just do a Ford 9" in the rear, 5.89s are available for that axle. Also, as far as I know you can't get 5.38s for a 8.8.

you are correct sir, i would get rid of the 8.8 if i had to go to 5.38s. But i am leaning towards doing another rear axle (even though i just built my 8.8 and d30 last yr). if i can find a waggy with both axles i may just do that. my 4banger couldnt break any drive-train components if i wanted it to...

Have you considered keeping the 4.88s and doing a 4-1 kit in the transfer case? Does it see a lot of highway miles?

it really doesnt see a lot of road, but i do drive to off road parks(2-8hrs away) and such. right now the 4.88s are bearable with the 35s on the street, perfect on the trail (well 4WL), but when there is wind im lucky to hit 60mph. so i think 37s will make me hate my life.
