A 4.56 isn't going to be any fun on the highway. Your cruising speed is probably going to be around 45 MPH. I'll have to ask about the price onthe axles. They cost $495 new with the c clip eliminators. He will probably sell them for around $400. You will need a 33 spline spool to go with them.

Yea, you can do 65 with 4.10s, but you probably won't like it.

If you are going to use a posi then you will have to use 30 spline axles instead of 33.

I have 4.11 gears in my car and I can run 80+ without a problem, but I have 32 inch tall tires. That makes a big difference. My 427 doesn't like to run below 2500 RPMs, so the 4.11 works well for me. A 26 or 27 inch tall tire is going to increase the RPMs a bunch with the 4.10 gears. If you can run a 28 inch tall tire then the 4.10 might be fine for you.

Tall street tires and shorter slicks is a better plan anyway,

Be carefull with those ebay differentials. There are a lot of people on there selling the Governor Lock as an Eaton Posi. The Gov Lock is made by Eaton, but it is not an Eaton Posi. If youa re looking for a stock 8.5 differential then you will be looking for a Traction Lock, which has the S spring in the center. Be sure that you get a 3 series and not a 2 series. The 3 series has the casting number 410408. Don't get the 410409.
