    So when i was in the high school league I welded the spider gears together in my rear diff for free posi. It has worked and held all this time but now I want to go to 3.73's because the 2.73's are too high. I can't just change the gears because the whole case is welded. So I might as well just...

    Well lets start with the story... One day on a cold and snowy afternoon my son decides to split his head open, so after the ER visit and droping him off at home I head back to my home and run off the road and hit the curb destroying one of my cobra R's, then to top it off bent the axle on the...

    All, My 2005 Mustang GT convertible was rear ended. It occured at an angle with the big Checy Pick up hitting it near the center but aiming more towards the driver. The rear bumper was replaced and the trunk fixed as well (it had buckled enough to not allow the trunk to open and the lid...

    I want to raise the rear end of my 1967 coupe. I hear that getting extended shackles can do this. I found a set of adjustable shackles on jegs and would there be any negative effects of using these to raise the rear end an inch or so? Mr. Gasket Adjustable Shackle Set - JEGS If shackles are a...

    We bought this 2000 Mustang GT from a kid a year or two ago. It has been a nightmare. He lied big time. The motor has been swaped out with what i know isnt a mustang motor. Tons of Problems with that. Interior was all swapped out with 1996 or a 1998 Mustang GT. Even the rearend was swapped out...

    So about a month ago I swapped out my little 7.5 rear end for an 8.8 into my 87 notch(4 cyl). The rear end came out of a 90 gt so it has the sway bar on it and I'm thinking thats why my car has been understeering so much..? Because the stock 7.5 rear end never had a sway bar on it. So my...

  13. 2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    I was looking at rebuilding the rear end of my '06 4.0L, put in a limited slip and some 3.73s. My question is how will this new gear ratio effect my performance at higher speeds? Should I expect to obtain a lower top speed and by how much? Also for high way driving I've been told that at 60mph I...

    My 96 GT has 104K miles and it has a noticeable shudder when backing in reverse (MT 5 spd). I was checking under the car and noticed the differential needed some gear oil, and I seem to have a pinion seal leak. I'm considering this opportunity to go from stock gears to 3.55 gears. Can anyone...

    ok, so I got a 2005 v6 mustang, the issue is a very bad ride I have a feeling its a bad shock(s) its very noisy over bumps and the rear end kinda moves all over when I hit a bump I believe its a shock due to the fact that there is a ton of construction going on where I live with horrible roads...

    I have a 2005 v6 mustang and I recently swapped in a 8.8 rear from newtakeoff.com. I drove around for about 200 miles on the gears pretty easy to allow them to brake in. Recently I started driving it hard/drag racing it again and I have noticed that between 30-40 mph I hear a woooowoooing noise...

    Hey everyone, I was driving the car down the highway with the convertible top up, when I thought I heard a humming noise from the rear end area of the car. Is there a real way to see/hear or test if the differential gears are going bad?
  20. V6 Tech
    I'm thinking of getting an SC for my 2000 manual and what I've read is that I'm going to need to redo my rear end. So before I start getting too excited about the SC I been looking into gears and differentials and I've decided that I will probably end up getting these 3.73 gears and this 7.5"...
