You'll need a gear install kit, but you won't need to go to higher spline count axles. I kind d of agree on skipping 3.55s, I've had two sets now and hardly noticed a difference when I swapped the first set in.

Yes I have all the tools I should need so I'm trying to find out every problem I could run in to. I have a press for all the bearings and i have a tuner for the rpms and MPH

I don't remember the specs off the top of my head any more, I did mine back in January. Google or a Haynes manual should have the specs though
