  1. 4.56 Gear Top End?

    2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    So for the past 5 months I've been busy with an interior infused carbon fiber conversion/swap, & a few days ago I noticed good priced 4.56's.

  4. Ford Rear End/Differential Identification

    Classic Tech
    Hey all, does this seem like an 8 inch Ford rear end to you, because it does to me. Going to upgrade to 3.55 gears and wanted to of course make sure before I bought them. Car was originally a 6 cylinder but now has a 351W and I think the previous owner installed a beefier rear end. Thanks.

    5.0L Tech
    So Ive seen the junkyard post about how the rangers came with 4.10 gears in 8.8 rear ends. Are these a straight swap over as in take the entire rear end and swap them out?
