    Hey guys, doing a i6 to 302 swap in my 68 coupe. Im shopping for a rear end because I know the tiny little 7 and 1/4 inches would break, so I'm just looking for a list of bolt in or easily modified rear ends to use, preferably with disc breaks set up. I know the 95-98 explorer 8.8's are...
  2. SVT Cobra Talk
    I have a 99 svt Cobra that I wrecked by sliding off a road and into a tree with. A few months after getting it all back to new it starts to make a grinding noise from the rear when turning left or when I hit bumps. After a mechanic had it for a couple days he couldn't find anything wrong. So...

    2000 GT 4.6 question. We recently purchased this car. It appears the rear was changed and I am guessing by the 7mph the speedo is off, it probably now has 3.73 gears. ABS module was not communicating, and we sent it out to be fixed, which was a success. Trouble code stored in PCM for wrong...

    Alright so after some days of research and dreaming of all my wishes of an engine I plan to build, I started to realize a lot goes with it other than just a swap. I plan on building up a 302 roller engine with high flow heads (probably like TW 170cc), a mild cam, and Edelbrock Performer RPM Air...

    For what it's worth: While my 2011 V6 was up on the lift getting new tires, I noticed the axle vent on the passenger side was oozing axle oil all over. Unacceptable. After verifying that the axle was not over-filled with gear lube, and not being satisfied with any of the fixes I found on...

    When I bought my car, I did a carfax on it. It showed that the car was in a wreck and that it has had previous rear end problems. When I bought my car, it had a small whine coming from the rear end and it has been getting worse. I took the rear end cover off and checked the inner bearings. They...

    This car slid and crashed into a curb really hard and broke a piece off the rim and popped the tire we changed the wheel/tire with a spare and the caliper was grinding down the rotor you could hear loud scraping but would be quieter at faster speeds what could be wrong with it. Bearings? Axle...

    Whenever i am driving there is this squeaky noise which is coming from my rear. I went to my mechanic who says its my rear axle that is bent. I have custom 17'' pony rims on the car.

    I have a 2000 Mustang GT. My shocks are worn out, they bounce me around over any and every bump in the road or highway. My bad shocks are causing my exhaust pipes to bounce and hit my rear axle, strange, i know. I was wondering if I were to replace my shocks before fixing my exhuast (which NEEDS...

    This is going to seem like a really stupid question. My girl hit a curb in my stang and i have a bent axle. Im changing it out this weekend. The axle comes with axle bearings and seals, that i can do. However the wheel bearings are what trips me up. So i have an axle and a hub bolted to the...

    So I decided to stick with the 7.5" instead of buying an 8.8 because I don't plan to putting a supercharger on my car. I do however want a limited slip and a set of 3.73s. I was about to purchase these two from AM: Mustang 3.73 Gears for 7.5 Rear End at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping Ford...

    It is still nice and warm in the garage but having been hit with 2 straight days of rain and +4 degree (C) temperatures the modding bug has been hitting me pretty hard. I've managed to put away some cash this winter and for my first two project I could use some input: 1. I want to put a...
