Where to find OE 4.10 gears

I was wondering if it is possible to find OE 4.10 gears out of a 8.5 diff in a truck. And what would be some clues besides taking off the cover. I mean like a sport model s-10 or a tow package????


Any ideas??

I know of no clues...you have to take the cover off and count the teeth.

You will be much better off just buying a new set of gears.

You are more apt to find 20 sets of 3.42, 10 sets of 3.73, and 5 sets of 3.08, before you find a set of stock 4.10 gears for an 8.5 axle.

If you are REALLY determined to find a used set you would be better off writing down the axle codes and checking the passenger side axleshaft tube, rather than pulling covers first, you are really only guessing at a poor return rate that way.

Another more reliable way to find a used set is search Ebay for them, you will be getting the same thing.

If you were to search S-10's, the 4cyl's came with the lower gears, higher numericaly

...and as far as I know they never came with a 8.5" 10-bolt with 4.10 gears.
