Icon5 gear ratio question

Okay so i was looking around the web and i found this What is my Ford rear end ratio, do I have positraction - Drivetrain.com and according to this with my axle code being 86 my gears are 4.56 does this mean i dont need to regear to run the 33s i want?

I highly doubt you've got 4.56 from the factory...


86 = open 7.5" w/ 3.73 gears.

here, other forums, craigslist, ebay? I'd highly suggest getting a junkyard 8.8" 4.10LS axle off a Ranger.

no. wrong lug pattern and way too wide. unless you like the 'entire tire sticking out of the fender' look.

Get a ranger axle w/ 4.10's. Stang or Crown Vic or anything else most definately will not come with 4.10's. That is what you're after right?

Have you checked out Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market yet?? I looked in the Washington D.C. area and there's some decently priced 4.10 8.8 limited slip w/ 10" brakes rear ends.
