04 GT 4.10 Ford Racing Gears too big?

I was talking to my mechanic about some modifications i'd like to make, and he told me to make sure that whatever size gears I got fit in the original "carrier" (I guess he meant gearbox?) So, would some 4.10 Ford Racing gears fit in the stock carrier? Or should I get the 3.73s? Please post back ASAP. Thank you!

Anything for an 8.8" rearend, which all GT's have, will fit. My advice is get the 4.10's, you're gonna have a hard time regretting that decision.

They are that good? so the 4.10s will fit, just to reiterate?
Here is a link; Ford Racing 4.10 Mustang Gears (86-12 V8 & 11-12 V6) at AmericanMuscle - Free Shipping!

Is there a better brand that I should get? Please post link if so!

This is a true and correct statement!

1996 Red Mustang GT - Sold back in 2012 after too much time and money was wasted on it.

Ok! Well, I noticed that the gears will give around a 200-400 rpm increase, and seeing as I have an automatic.. Will I need to go to ford and have them reset my shift points?

No you dont need to mess with ur shift points. thats is an entirely separate mod that is pretty good. You will love the 4.10 gears trust me. unless you some need to cruise at 115 mph that is.......i have the 4.10s and i have a top speed of about 125 130...plenty good for me and my set up. You will LOVE the acceleration. BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK

Just an old ford...

No, but you will need a Speedcal (cheaper route) or a handheld tuner (better route) to recalibrate your speedometer. Otherwise it will read 20-30 mph high. Places like americanmuscle sell the gears and tuner in combo packs, highly reccomend going this way if budget allows.
