Post 49,50,51 Ford rearends

Hey Guys!
Hellllllp.I`ve got a 40 over 302 in my 50 with a stock 411 rearend,it explodes comming off the line but when i`m running 65,70 on the highway it acts like i`m running in a lower gear because when i let up it slows down pretty quick. I think i need to go to a higher gear but what gear? and where can i get some to fit the stock rearend? oh! i almost forgot, i`m running a c4 ao. thanks for your help Rocky

3:54s should be better but it depends on your entire setup. Go to my Photo Album (willys36@aol.com) and look at the gear calculator graph there. Find the ratio that lets you cruise at the lowest RPM (you DO have a tach don't you?) that you engine feels like it is in it's power band.
