Have any of you guys ever tried to stuff 2.75:1 gears into a 9' ford center section with a Detriot Locker? My 5 speed is 1:1 in 5th gear. Thanks in advance

It won't bother your locker at all. Which gears are in there won't make a bit of difference to it. With 2.75's your acceleration will suck, even with a 5 speed.

I have a camaro with a richmond 5 and 2.75 gears and it starts out about the same as my corvette with a muncie and 3.70 gears.
That 3.27 first gear makes quite a difference. I used a trac loc which came with 3.50's and there was no problem with the switch.
