That is somewhat true. I regear'd to a 4.56 from a 3.55 on both diffs. The front is a reverse cyt and sets up on an 8.8 axle and the rear is a standard cut and sets up on a 9.75 axle. I have heard that the front set is 1 tooth short of the rear, so technically youre right. But it is still advertised as a 4.56 ratio reverse cut kit. They MUST be the same ratio or you will cause serious damage once 4WD is engaged!
