Wow,,, is it possible to use 4.56 gears as a daily drive ?? i don't really care about gas, im looking to put 4.10 on my 1990 5.0 and make it ready for any street race and the sametime a daily drive or maybe travel to somewhere around 1500 mile, so is that possible ( have u tried to hit the road for something around 500 mile with your 4.56 gear ) - hussein 3 years ago

Accepted Answer
Yes 3.73 gears will definitely give you better gas mileage, especially if you are driving on the interstate a lot. It will also prevent you from prematurely wearing out your engine by lowering your RPM at least 500 to 600 highway speeds, maybe even more than that. This is just my opinion of course from years of personal experience.
