I doubt you can swap your differential out for one that is geared differently. The pinion gear on the transmissions secondary shaft is likely cut into the shaft, not bolted on. Therefore, to change the differential gear ratio, you need to also replace the secondary transmission shaft which is not a small job. If it is bolted on you're in luck.
