They do run taller gears to make up for that but the gear ratios can be changes. Why do you want them. Getting larger tires. If so what size and whats you engine make for power. Might need to re-gear anyway.

37"s 360 don't know hp going rebuild that and supercharge it tho


in that case they will work and stronger too, just take some measurements end flange to flange and spring perches , and shaft connections and placement

Thanks for your help much appreciated
