The common answer is 3.73's are the dividing line (some have vibes, some dont)
Anything after that requires a driveshaft.
Also depends on extended LCA's.
Thats just the USUAL answer tho....anything could happen.

I too had 4.11 gears with stock shaft and no trouble.

I plan to go aluminum on the 96 asap

Mine with the T56 didn't vibrate til about 80mph. But it's a harmonic thing with the steel driveshaft. You just can't avoid the physics... Wink

Yes, thats why a drive-shaft loop is such a great idea!
Calculate your driveshaft speed by tire diameter & wheel RPMs, rear gear ratio and the maximum expected vehicle speed.
Then, measure your driveshaft length and refer to this chart below:

Here's an interesting calculator page:
