girlfriend got me some 411 gears (she's going straight for my heart!!), and a guy at the auto repair shop by my house said they wont fit on my current 9" carrier (limmited slip posi with 3.00). He said the 9" came in different bolt patterns for the different gear ranges of 3.XX, 4.XX, and 5.XX. Is this true? Whats up, never heard of this before...

GMs have different carriers for 4.xx or larger, or 3.99s or smaller, but Fords take the same carrier bolt pattern for all carriers.

Find a more qualified installer.
