98 A4 with 3.23s ?
I ordered new 3.73s a week ago and they showed up yesterday, so I go to get them installed this morning and the guy asks me what gear I have in it now, and from what I have found out, I tought I had 2.73s, so he says that wont work because of the carrier size is to small and I will need to get a thicker gear for it to work...Right before I leave he says, all though if I did have 3.23s then bring it back and he can put them in due to the carrier size will make it work. So I get home and call GM and I have them run my VIN number and they say that stock an A4 T/A Formula has 3.23s...Am I going crazy cuz I swore A4s came with 2.73s ???

Your right I dont need a new carrier it just needs to be a thicker ring so that the penion will reach it ok, but if I have 3.23s in it right now the carrier will be big enough that the penion will reach it just fine, which I have never heard of or even thought about up until this point, but I also thought I had 2.73s in my stock rear ?

GU2 - 2.73 - 2 series carrier
GU5 - 3.23 - 3 series carrier
Sometimes people change the gears or the entire rear too. My car came with 2.73's so the door says GU2, but have a complete 3.42 rear out of an M6 car in mine.
