Suspension/axle upgrades for gears

I was looking into upgrading to 4.10 (Richmond?) gears. What kind of upgrades or parts should I install to daily drive and be safe that I won't break anything?

Jannetty Racing Enterprises (JRE) Posi Mod, JRE Billet Main Caps, and the most experienced installer you can find (you gotta find someone that knows these Camaro IRS differentials). Maybe even the LPW Diff cover for added insurance. Jannetty is probably the most experienced installer there is, I would PM him for any additional advice. He has a great "exchange" program too!!

+1

I would also recommend looking into stronger axles. I wouldn't say that they are *needed* but I'm a big fan of "better safe than sorry"

Would also be a good time for differential bushings and even subframe bushings. And whatever else you can do to eliminate wheel hop (trailing arms and/or toe rods), can also prolong your gear life expectancy.
