    That driveshaft attach point is different than the one in my V, not sure on compatibility. Have you noticed that it is a different LSD and gear ratio?

    If the diff meant for an 8 cylinder didn't hold up, why would a diff meant for a 6 cylinder? It will bolt up...other than that.....

    I noticed that it was a different ratio but aren't the regular cts and cts v duffs the same? I have a local dealer that will sell me a gen 4 for 1500. The shop I have do some of my work called g force about their 9inch kit they recommend 3.90 g/r for a na setup. Just stumbled across the and didn't know what you guys thought.
