A 4.10, a tire, and control arms may lead you to torque box reinforcement ASAP!

just put 410's in it and save your money for trick flow and save your money for the short block and bore it. you will be more than happy with the 410's till you can do the whole motor. but i would do the whole motor at once if not you will end up wasting money on cheap parts.
