You cannot gear something for both, you should be able to find a ratio that makes you happy. If you gear it for low end or fast take-off, you will lose tope end. If you gear it for top end you will lose the low end. There are alot of variable you did not mention, engine size, and performance mods. If you want it to have faster top end than it does now, decrease the size of the sproket on the drive axle or increase the sproket on the motor. I would not do both at once, change one or the other. Go to you local go-cart shop they should be able to help.

How do you id rear end gear ratio in 1993 Chevy pickup?

Need to remove the rear end plate. Then count the teeth that is on the ring gear ( big gear ) and write it down. Now look up inside of the housing and you will see another smaller gear that runs in the big gear, That will be the pinion gear, count those teeth now. Now take this # and devide it into the first # you wrote down and this will be the gear ratio. You will have to jack it up and take it out of gear, so you can turn the gears to be able to count them.

What will happen if you take the rear end to a Chevrolet 1500 z71 and put the rear end to a Chevrolet 2500 in the place?

Nothing really. But remember that the front and rear ring and pinion MUST be the same gear ratio. You didn't say if the Z71 was a 4-wheel drive. If it is not then you will either kill the engine power are may even increase the power.That depends on the gear ratio in the 3/4 TON rear end and the 1/2 ton rear end. / DIFFERENCE Low gear verses high gear. Low gear= Power. High Gear = No power.
