  3. T Lok from a ranger?

    2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    I've been looking around for T Loks, and I found a new one for a 7.5 28 spline and it says it'll fit most rangers, mustangs, etc. (Basically anything with a 7.5 28 spline). My question is, are the t lok units universal if they're the right spline count, regardless off the application? Aka...
  4. Installing an Auburn, need advice

    V6 Tech
    I am the proud new owner of a gently used Auburn differential and am in need of some advice. I am keeping my gear ratio the same so the pinion is staying in. Do I just pull the axles back, remove the carrier bearings and swap diffs or is there more to it? Are there any parts or special tools...

  8. Just bought my gears/ install?

    2005-2010 Mustang Talk
    well i finally pulled the trigger on buying my gears and i really didnt feel like droping in a 8.8 and really i thought to myself how long it will be until i get a supercharger or a turbo so i went with the 4.10s, it may be a year or 2 before i get Fi, so i can always change to 3.73's once that...

    5.0L Talk
    When I was 16 I bought a 1984 mercury capri that had been hacked and mangled into an RS with a 5.0 AOD and what I thought was an 8.8 LS rear end. When I bought a rebuid kit on ebay I had problems beacuse there were no clutches in the rear end and it has 5 spings instead of one S-shaped spring...
