4.1 ratio diff matched with 4.11 ratio...

If I was going to drop a 4.10:1 ratio rear diff into my subi with a 4.111:1 front ratio what would be the consequences of this on the viscous centre diff?
Got an idea in my head that I want to do on the cheap if possible - I really don't want to buy a new R&P set if possible, but I also really don't want to destroy my centre diff.
I know the ratios are close, but are they close enough not to do damage?

maybe not practical for many people but, just a mental exercise hah!

With that setup you'd have a slight rear power bias......might be good for drifting:brow:
Perhaps run some slightly worn down tires on the back, and brand new up front?

Anyway the difference of 4.1 and 4.111 is 0.27%. 1/4" on a 205/50-15 tire for example is 0.35%. I think you will be just fine, just be sure to rotate the tires as scheduled.

Plan is to fit another vehicle's diff to the rear of my subi and run an air locker - this way I can still safely use my AWD in the snow/really slippery conditions without the rear end sliding out as it would with a welded or auto locker.
