rear axle assembly vs ring and pinion

Hi guys
I want to change my gear to 4.10, but from what i heard it is so sensitive . So i am thinking to get a full rear axle assembly and i found one at Newtakeoff. What do you think guys is it better or just change ring and pinion with installation kit.

Get a good installer and the gear swap will be fine. Definitely want a master bearing/install kit to go along with it.

4.10 installed

I just had a friend from my work do the install. Sounds more quiet than the stocker. Boy, what a difference-this car is fun now.

The secret must be having someone who knows what they are doing do it. After all the horror stories on this board I was really nervous about changing the gear. It went very well and makes no noise at all. Unless you absolutely know some one like that, it is a crap shoot.

I think it would be pretty sweet to have two complete rear assemblies. One set up for track and another for the road(course). That would make it easy to swap.

I thought about the same thing, but realized that Newtakeoff.com is probably having someone put 4.10 gears in a 3.31 take-off. So someone other than Ford is setting up that rear. That's my theory anyway, so I'm going with a local Mustang shop to set up my gears.

I wouldn't think NTO touches anything. This would cut too far into profits. They just sit back and wait for companies like Roush or Saleen to send in parts and then resell them. I would call and confirm if this was the only concern. Either way someone other than Ford is doing the install.

Sounds like a good one. Im all for having extra parts that you can swap out if you need to

I'm running the exact same set-up and glad I did. Mine is a quiet as. I think the it's the use of FRPP gears that really helped with the lack of noise. I was worried about highway RPMs with 4.10s, they are fun there too.
