What year truck do you have? Are you saying the speedo was correct until you changed the gears?

The later ones get the speed electronically at the rear diff and it doesn't matter what size gears you have, only the tires. When you change tires on these, the truck must be reprogrammed with the new tire size for an accurate speedo.

I don't have a hypertech programmer but have researched them and they state they can correct the speedometer on a 99. For them you need the tire diameter. The dealer computer would want the revolutions per mile. These vary slightly even on tires that are the same size. You can look up your tire www.tirerack.com or the manufactures's web site to get the diameter or revs/mile.
