On paper, the 3/4-inch difference between the Dana 60 (Left) and Dana 50 (Right) ring gear may not seem like much, but a little can make a big difference. Sitting at 9 inches, the Dana 50 ring gear doesn’t have as much surface area as the 9.75-inch 60. The increased contact pattern on the 4.56 G2 Axle & Gear Dana 60 ring gear will also help to distribute load more effectively. Depending on what differential carrier you are running, you will need to specify whether you need a standard or thick gearset.
