I beleive you can change any gear that you want to when it comes to nine inch as long as your splines dont change.

no problems changing gears in a 9". when you use a very low gear, you may have to grind a little on the housing near the inner most pinion bearing. sometimes the ring gear will hit it. other than that, you shouldn't have any problems.
