Any way to make DAMN sure it's not for 4:56 and (numerically) lower. Cause that's what it looks like.

Could be a D61 ,, there is another similar thread going here in general 4x4.. "gear setup - backlash question " or something like that.

If its a 61 , youll need a ring gear spacer.. if its a 60 , you prob. have the wrong carrier spool.

What spool do you have?
High ratio carrier would be 2.73-4.10
Low ratio 4:56-7.717
I would guess you have a high ratio carrier with a Normal gear.
You can either get a thick gear, or the correct spool.
You can get a spacer, I personally think they are band aids for problems.
