New Spider Gears

So I just bought some new spider and side gears for my 2000 Silverado because the previous owner toasted them. I don't know they were still together. I had pictures but my dad's gone and lost the camera. :banghead:

So I bought new one off Summit racing, they're Superior 82-2022.

They are the exact dimensions as my old gears, and 30 spline and everything matches up except the tooth count. My old ones had 15 and 11 teeth, and the new ones have 13 and 9 teeth.

Now if my logic is correct, this shouldn't make a difference. All that should mean is that the when the wheels are spinning at different speeds one will spin a tiny bit slower (or faster, whichever it is) with the new gears in.

Looking for input to make sure I'm not gonna blow up my truck or something when I put these in tomorrow.. :Grenade:
