    2011 - 2014 V6 Mustang Tech
    Ok, so I purchased FRPP 3.55 gears and the Install Kit w/ bearings (part # M-4210-B) for my 2012. I had a shop install the gears and install kit yesterday but the minute I got out on the road there was a lot of gear whine, especially on decel and higher speeds. So, I took it back to the shop...

    2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    I have a 2010 Mustang GT and have a clunk noise that is pretty loud When accelerating, specifically, changing from 1st to 2nd gear. If I shift under a load the noise is not there. It has factory installed 3.73's. I am pretty sure it is from the rear end but I can feel it ever so slightly in...
