10 bolt should be a 8.6 ring Gear carrier for 30 spline axles. I think the older 10 bolts had like a 27 spline axles.

Yes, the newer one is 8.6" the prior ones were 8.5" I am not sure if they'll interchange....someone will post up whether they will or not.

EDIT: To answer your last question....Yes, it is still called a 10 bolt....but an 8.6" 30 spline vs. the prior 8.5" 30 spline.

I could be wrong, I am a little jazzed up on pain meds, but I think the later 8.6 has bigger carrier bearings. That should mean the earlier carrier would need special bearings for it to fit. I know thay make bearings to go the other way, late carrier in early housing, but not sure of doing it the other way around. You alos have the spline difference, so you are probably better off getting the wright carrier fro your dif.

i looked all over for a 8.6" carrier and theres nuthing but i see lots of 8.5" and the detroit locker site has a locker that says " works with 8.5-8.6" so ....are thay the same carrier and gear .. just diff bearings?

My thought went to the 6lug 14b. Should be a bolt in(except the u-joint) Does your diff have speed/ABS sensor/s?

The one i have doesn't have a sensor on it. It is a 96 or 97.They are kinda spendy compared to just getting the right carrier for the diff you have. around here they go for about $500.00 on average. Got it for my Tahoe for when I lift it.(soon i hope)
