    Unless your getting a used 10 bolt cheap (less than $300) get yourself a Strange 12 bolt with 4:11 gears.

    Get a 9" with 4:11's. It will help your 1/4 mile time but it won't lower your rpm's like you asked, it will raise them.

    A nine inch w/Detroit locker is pretty much indestructible.

    You can daily drive 4:11's no problem. Depending on what options you go with figure on paying right around $2500 when it's all said and done. Mine has 35 spline axles, a spool, it was powdercoated, and came completely assembled with backing plates and 5/8" studs for that.

    Better as opposed to what? For the street most people will tell you a diff is better because in tight turns a spool will have to break loose the inside tire to make the turn. If you keep it out of parking lots you should be fine. Mine is not a daily driver but it sees a fair amount of cruising around in the summer time and I prefer the spool. It always spins both tires and never needs rebuilt.

    not really. they just throw your rpms up higher durring highway speeds, its doesnt bother drivibility.

    So when i downshift at 75mph i'd have to hit 4th instead of 3rd?
    The car will accelerate slower though right then it would with my stock 3.42 gears
