Yep, Just got off the phone with the eaton tech guys. The worm gears are stronger in the forward direction. So for the front design the just install them the other way. Otherwise they are the same. Kinda like how a d30 Hp is stonger then the Lp because of the back cut in the ring gear. Like Duke from GI Joe says..." Knowing is half the battle"

Not sure in off road usage, but in the drag world, it seems the quality of them is worse in the last few years due to manufacturing changes. Lot of people are killing the 9" units.
