  1. 2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    Hi everyone; The car is a stock '07 Shelby (not GT500) with 73,000 miles. I have a noise in the left rear when I go over bumps. Like a thump but harsher. I have checked every bushing and link but find nothing abnormal. When I pull the wheel and caliper and lift on the flange, I get the noise...
  2. 2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    Recently I started to notice this swooshing sound coming from the rear end at very low speeds. My best description of the sound is like, if my trunk was a giant fish tank that was half empty/full and is splashing around. haha. I read somewhere about the brakes being bad but I checked them and...

    Hi all, I'm going to be installing some BMR LCA this weekend and I'm just wondering how you guys get the rear up? I see a lot of people stressing NOT to lift using the Diff. This is my first time lifting a vehicle and I'm just wondering what the proper way would be? Can I use a floor jack to...

    I pulled a rear axle to replace the wheel bearing and found a pretty deep groove where the bearing rides. I have been reading up on options. I'm going to check out the local junkyards for a used axle, but I'm not optimistic. What do you guys recommend? So far I have seen: put a sleeve on...

    My 2013 V6 had the usual axle vent leaking. The axle was wet, I wiped it dry, and all was well. No problems. With my 2014 GT, however, this amount of leaking doesn't seem normal, right? My growing concern started yesterday when I noticed there were fluid/oil marks on my driveway. I had never...

    I need a new passenger side rear axle and bearings etc. Is there any reason this part from CJ pony parts wont fit my 8" inch axle housing? 9" Rear Axle 28 Spline Axle Kit 67/70

    Hi All, I have 07 4.0L V6 mustang. Rear passenger side of axle of my mustang has bent and I need to replace it. I checked with Ford parts and one local shop, they have axle which is $350+. I also looked at some other sites where some axles are around $150+. I am not sure whether I should get it...
  8. V6 Tech
    Hello, I have a 2000 v6 mustang and I've notice that I've got a good amount of play in my ring and pinion gears. I want to change them out and get a posi diff at the same time but they don't make a lot of performance parts for our v6's. I've checked on American muscle and ebay and Craig's list...

    I love these gears that were installed in my 08 bullitt. Big difference from the 3.73's. Anyway as you guys probably have already heard, they're making a humming sound at pretty much all speeds. I've already tighten the pinion nut a little bit...didn't work. Had the backlash tighten a little...

    Hey guys, I was driving around today and I began to suddenly feel some play (specifically left and right) in the rear wheels. It happens almost every rotation. I was wondering if you guys though this might be a worn out axle bearing or if you guys have had issues like this before? Thanks.

    I have a 1965 Mustang Coupe, I recently blew the spider gears in the axle:bigthumbsup haha. The axle is a 7.25 Ford axle, everything else is fine, ring and pinion doesn't even have a knick in them, axle shafts straight gears fine, bearings fine, just the spider gears are gone. I'm going to...
  12. V6 Tech
    hello, I want to rebuild the rear end on my 2000 V6. I was planning on getting an 8.8" LSD with 3.73 gears. It's easier to find these parts with 31 splines instead of the stock 28 I have. I also want new axles so i figured I might as well get everything with 31 splines. I know the my drive shaft...

    So recently I have been hearing my rotor grind against my caliper on the dirver's rear and i took it apart today to check things out. Not only did i find a groove ground into the disk but i also found that there was an oil leak from that axle. I pulled out my axle and things seem fine. Tomorrow...

    On my 68 I have a stock 8in with 3.00 ratio, my plans are to put the edelbrock pro flo EFI 2 on it. I'm not sure if I should rebuild the 8in and put 3.80 in it, because I do have a complete ford 9in that I was given for free. I've heard so much about people putting the 9in on muscles, even...

    ok, so im trying to figure out the axle on my car, there is no data plate in the door, but there is a data plate on the pumpkin, I was able to clean it well enough to get these numbers off it CZ-F 9LA 008 931A Im having a hard time finding anything on the web to help me decode it, any...
  16. 4.6L Tech
    Hey guys, I have a 2004 GT automatic. I just recently had new pads and rotors replaced on all four wheels. I did this because there was a high pitched squeel coming from the right rear wheel. There was also a type of grinding felt in the brake pedal right before I come to a complete stop...

    Did Ford make a backing plate on a large bearing 9" that used 10"x1 3/4" drums? Hey there, I am in search of a cheap way to get my car running again. I wanted to do a disc brake conversion, but am tired of having my car sitting and would like to drive it again soon. I am looking into reusing...

    Hey guys, I'm back and its been awhile. I'm back with more questions than answers but some more knowledge and ready to pick your brains once more. Last summer I bought a few power adders that I'm more than happy with but need to get my car where it needs to be. I installed the zex nitrous kit...

    My mustang is bogging down and I have already replaced the intake and all gaskets, the differential is going bad, could that be why? I need to know if I replace that will it stop...
  20. 2011 - 2014 Mustang GT Tech
    Hello, my mustang recently developed a winding sound. At startup, there's nothing.. then when I apply the break, and/or turn the wheel, the sound comes and also gets more severe as I apply more of the break, and or turn the wheel further. After 20min of driving and engine has warmed up to...
