so i got my new gears in and I swear its hard to tell if its anyt faster....in fact I kind of liked the other gears..first gear went to about 50 and 2nd was about 90...now it never wants to downshift to first and even when its in first..It doesnt feel faster...I swear it was faster with the 3.08s..is it even possible for my car to be slower with 3.73s than it was witjh the 3.08s?

I went from 3.08s to 3.55s a couple years ago, and from 3.55s to 4.10s just this past weekend. The difference was VERY noticeable(in a good way) both times.... :banana:

Did you put them in yourself, or did someone put them in for you like a shop??
i'm thinking you probably got screwed and they kept your 3.73's :dunno:

i went from 2.73's to 3.73's in my old fox and it was like having a completely different car.
you should definately be able to feel a difference. :eek:uttahere:

with the 3.73s or the 3.08s you can go to 50 in first?

I say you go with 4.10's and you'll see the difference big time. "DON'T FEAR THE GEAR" :santa_grin:

I didnt have 3:08 I had 2:73's. However, when they were changed to 3:73's it was like night and day!

Was your speedo correct before the swap? If it was, have a friend pace you now and see if it is off/correct. THen you will know if you got screwed.

just because you supplied it, doesnt mean it actually went into your car man.

Or you could jack the rear end up, rotate the wheel one time and count how many times the axle turns.

i have 3:73's in my car and it still feels too slow to have them i believe, i have tiny 16-17" rims and i can't even get my tires to spin off the line if i slam on it :santa_sad: (i do have an auto) but i would have thought those low gears would make my tires spin from a stop.
