Yes.... and there's also thin and thick HP60 gears.

i think the lower aftermarket gears still fit the 4:10 carrier.

on the dana 60 it is 4.10 and lower numericly(higher geared # 3.55 or 3.31 etc) and 4.56 and higher numericly (lower gearing # 4.88 or 6.17 etc )
on the high pinion (rev cut)it is normally a 4.10 carrier as thick cut gears appear to be the norm .

I think the way it went down was Ford never offered anything deeper than 4.10 in a HP60 for many years. So the aftermarket adopted the same case split on the HP60 gears as the LP60. Might as well be consistent, right?

Then the Ford Superduty comes out (4.30, 4.88 & 5.38 ratios), and for whatever reason the case-split is eliminated, and all ratios fit the 4.10- case. (i.e. "thick" gears)

So what does the aftermarket do now? Make both by the looks of it.....
