    Lower gears such as 410/411/456 are typically more useful with NA cars that are either stock or have an aftermarket cam.
    DITTO.

    Yeah I think you're on the right track here. If you wanna run 315 tires,an S60 rearend, and lower your car, you should probably get adjustable LCA, adj PHB, and adj torque arm. That way you can get everything perfectly setup and centered.

    i want to be able to cruise around in the pig called 6th gear without flooring it to make it up steep hills. 323's were too much for my liking and 410s were perfect so i figure with a FI m6 with 3.73s cruising with no boost, ill be able to make it up hills like the ones where i live. thats one of the main reasons for not wanting to go with 3.23s, or 3.42's or anything like that. i want to lug around in 6th...

    Whatever you do, have it mount off the tailshaft of the transmission...so get one with a relocation mounting bracket.

    get the LCA relocation brackets for the rear end you choose.

    You might need a different sway bar mounting kit also if you stick with the stock piece depending on which rear end you get. It is close with the Moser 9"...I don't know about the S60.
