Confused on What to Get

I'm going to be getting 4.10s installed, but unsure on what to get at this page 1994-1998 Ford Mustang Gears at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping!

Do I need the Ford Racing Ring & Pinion Installation Kit - 8.8in Solid at $109.99

and the

Rear End Installation and Bearing Kit - 8.8in (86-12 V8; 11-12 V6) at $74.99

and the

Rear End Installation Kit - 8.8in (86-12 V8; 11-12 V6) at $35.99

Not sure what I need.

The $109 is the master kit, and has everything you will need, including axle bearings and seals. The other two are just cut down version. Look at the piese in each kit and u will see.

4.10 - good choice


.
Mods = None. (well maybe just a few)
DB-Performance Tune: 634rwhp @ 6000rpm , 609rwtq @ 4000rpm, (500rwtq @ 2500rpm)

Thanks brother. I'm wondering if I should get the T LOK rebuilt as well while they are back there. The car has 100k on the clock.

Should I get this kit

or this kit

Sorry, had to take the boss out for dinner.

It would hurt to rebuild the diff. AM also has the FR completw diff for $200. Either way I would stick with AM, abd make sure it is for a 28 spline. Plus AM will provide tech sup if you need it...

if you are using your stock axles make sure u check for any excesive play with your new axle bearings. Meaning after you install the axle wiggle the axle up and down. Also it is a good idea to do the same wiggle before pulling it apart to see what the stock set up feels like, even tho the stock bearing might be worn. Also check the dia of the axle were the bearing rides. May need new axles??

Could take the opportunity to upgrade to 31 spline axels and diff if you are feeling ambitious and want to spend some money.

Very good idea here. Probably unnecessary unless you plan on hard launches with stickies, but then again the peace of mind that comes with a built rear is priceless regardless of what you do with the car.

This car is and never will be launched, or taken to the track. It is a street car only.

Between the 2 T LOK rebuild kits, I'm trying to determine if it is worth the extra money to get the 4700-C kit with carbon discs, or stick with the 4700-B kit. There is a huge price difference.

Any help?

If it were me I would get the carbon discs kit. I have found that you get what you pay for and I do not think that this is an area to go cheap on. But thats coming from somebody who likes to spend money and completely rebuilt the rear end of their mustang, I liked the added security and it was coming apart anyways.

Well, the "B" kit is basically a factory stock replacement, and the "C" is a little more heavy duty. Being that your car is at mild power levels and all street use, you should be fine saving a few $ by going with the "B".

Does anyone know what the Ford part number is for the Ford Racing Ring and Pinion Installation kit sold at American Muscle, or where to find the exact same one? AM is sold out, and I cannot wait
