Need help, Question with amc 20 open to lsd

I have a off road trip coming up next weekend and finally opened up the spare amc 20 axle that i have have for years and it has lsd!! i should have looked at it when i bought all the parts. i counted the teeth on the gears and they come out to be 3.07 gears. would i be able to put this carrier into the axle under my jeep with 3.73 gear? thanks

Yes 2.73 carrier is the only one that is different. 3.73 gears on 3.07 carrier will work as long as you shim it and get the proper setup on the gears. Also check the clutches in the LSD.

Also if you have the Dana 30 up front carrier is 3.54 and numerically down and 3.73 numerically higher

Which LS is it? A trac Lok isn't worth the effort.
