I'm doing some research today if noone has noticed. My question is, I have 3 rearends out of Metric cars and none of the gears will interchange. How can I match or what numbers do I match to find out if the gears will interchange? I'm trying to put a set of 3.08 gears in and don't want to experiment with every rearend to to see which one it will work in. I am currently running 2.73"s.

if im on the same page as u the 308 has a thinner carrier than the 273 if your ordering a gear order it for the 273 carrier unless you have the tihnner carrier outta308 or lower gear like 323 or shoulgnt be to hard to find a complete rear with a 308 though. pull the cover and count the teeth.
im interested in your rear end the nine inch that is lol read your I/M oops wrong person on the 9" sorry
