    so i placed an order for some 4:30 gears with a complete install kit from 50resto about mid february and i found out they were on backorder till march 22, so i waited and i didnt hear anything about them, i called the 24 and they said they were still on backorder till april 9, so i was like what ever then i told them id rather have the 4:10's, well today is the 11 of april and i just called they are still on backorder until the 9th of may, i asked why and the guy said that ford is looking for another company to make their gears for them as the other one went out of business, so right now they are looking at yukon to make their gears for them, thats the story i heard :eek:utofcloset:

    i think 4:30's was the highest, cause i originally ordered them, then switched over to 4:10's

    the reason i didnt was cause 50resto had a complete install kit with everything you need for $280
