Default New Gears???

I have a 2000 Firehawk, and I'm looking to upgrade to a set of 4:11's. Just wondering what brand to go with? and where would be the best place to buy them?

Motive or the GM/SLP/AAM gears seem to be popular here

FYI, 4.10's would be the correct ratio for the GM stock 10 bolt. And as mentioned, Motive, Richmond and others are good quality brands. JAWS gear&axle is a sponsor here.

Thanks guys. My car has traction control, so I'll need a different gear set correct?

No the trac-control is part of the rear end not the gears. Just put motive performance 3.42 in which I purchased from the WS6store great people over there. Don't forget the posi additive.
