40 Olds rear end

I know I probably should change the housing and complete rear end assembly, but has anyone had any luck in changing or finding different ratio gears for this stock rear end??

The rear end is a coil spring setup and to change the assembly would require alot of welding. Also the way things are set up with the panhard rod, there isn't enoung room to run my dual exhaust out the back so they dump out from under the running boards

It is eather a 4:11 or 4:40 ratio now and I would like to go to 3:08 ratio

Thanks!!
