1998 Mustang gear change question

Will be doing a gear change on my 1998 mustang GT this winter . Have purchased all the parts , including a installation DVD & Rebuild book . Would appreciate an opinion regarding the crush sleeve . My Ford Racing install kit includes the crush sleeve , but some information I've received says I'm better off using the solid sleeve with shims ? Any thoughts on which to use ? Also on the solid one , looking on line , notice they sell for anywhere from $12.00 to $50.00 , are they all the same or go by the premise the more expensive must be better ?

Just wondering. How many times to do plan on changing your gear ratio? Say for different kinds of racing?

Unless you are planning to change or re-do the gears multiple times, the crush sleeve is easier to install. The crush sleeve main disadvantage is that it can't be reused.

Also, if this is your first rodeo, the crush sleeve is the smartest option.
