rear end

  1. Introductions
    I just recently got a 331 stroker motor EFI built up for my 1994 mustang gt. Its got only 350 kilometers on it so far, but has far less power than i expected. I think it may be the gears in the rear end. They are either 2.73s or 3.08s. Unfortunately, the door doesn't have the sticker on it that...

    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 1995 mustang gt 5 speed with what seems to be either clutch or rear end knocking. I can't pin point where it's coming from. Maybe someone had this problem before? I just had my clutch replaced. I used an autozone replacement clutch nothing fancy since I just needed it running for now...

    i decided to give an update on my car and how the swap to a 03 cobra IRS went, but first the reason for the delay is that last ticket i got gave me my 12 points and now i will be driving tomorrow. the swap was fairly easy but you will need a buddy. just make sure you get the rear drive shaft...

    Hey, looking into doing some suspension upgrades this coming april. I have decided that getting the rear end done before the front would be best because of classic's poor rear end suspension and weight problem. There are 3 routes I would like to go, for $5000 I can put in an independent rear...

    Hello everyone, I have a 1965 mustang coupe with a 351 Windsor a C4 auto tranny and from what I've been told, a 7.25 rear end. I was out messing around... doing dumb stuff in my classic and popped my spider gears, on turns she pops and clanks from the rear. Now I know that's a very weak rear...

    I just picked up a entire center section, for a 8 inch rear end, up last night for 60 bucks, still has the gears in it, that came out of a 1965 (maybe 64) Flacon Sprint. I got this for my 1965 mustang, and was told it was a posi. When i got to the guys house we took the center section off the...

    Hello all, I was just wondering what rear end comes in older mustangs. I've done some research and I believe mine has an 8". So my question is, one day if I decide to do a gear swap could I swap something in like 3.50's or 3.73's and what would be a good gear ratio for my stang? I just drive it...

    I have a 2002 Mustang GT 5spd. I bought it about 3 months ago, There has been a squeak coming from the rear and it speeds up with the car. I thought at first it was the brakes. I got new rear rotors and calipers, and I got new pads all around the car... The squeak is louder now that when I got...

    Hello, I am new to the Mustang world. I just purchased a 1991 Mustang LX a few days ago and changed the gear oil in the rear end. I didn't add any friction modifier in the rear end. What if it is a limited slip differential, will it junk it? How can I tell if it is limited slip or an open...

    anybody located in or around the Charleston SC area know of a good shop to get rear end gears done???? I've had a set of 410 gears sitting in my garage for a good while now and can't seem to find a descent place to install them that doesn't charge an arm and a leg. no way in hell I'm paying...

    Any recommendations on good shops in south eastern wisconsin, particularly in the Milwaukee area to have my subframes installed? I am looking for one with a "drive on" lift, as i read thats the best way to do it. Thanks!

    I recently put a fresh 347 in my 91 GT which made very short work of the stock transmission. Now that I need a new transmission I was hoping for some input or suggestions on ratios for that and the rear end. The car probably won't see too much of the strip (but would like to have that option)...

    I've seen a couple of 90's camaros and of course a couple of new edge mustangs with a drop, but with the front end sitting about an inch lower than the rear, I really love this look because it gives it a very aggressive look, what would be a good amount of drop to acheive this look? im thinking...

    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...
