    Recently I started to notice this swooshing sound coming from the rear end at very low speeds. My best description of the sound is like, if my trunk was a giant fish tank that was half empty/full and is splashing around. haha. I read somewhere about the brakes being bad but I checked them and...

    Okay so the stock rear end on the car locked up. I've been told to just get a new rear end from a junkyard and swap them. Are there any precautions when doing this? and would be putting a gt rear end be just as easy or very beneficial?

    OK guys how about this? Could it cause a problem with my factory D/S or U-joints if my transmission mount was lose. I had a knocking sound under the car when I had a load on the rearend while going over bumps and humps, I guess the D/S was flexing or moving with the transmission. Just woundering...

    Hi 5.0 lovers! I am wondering if anyone knows the rear end gear ratio for a stock 1988 GT? I found a deal on an 8.8 that I am thinking of putting in my Turbo Stang, but the guy selling it said that gear ratio was 2.73, when I am pretty sure it is supposed to be 3.73. 2.73 would be great for...

    what is the best way to change my 89 gt from a 4 lug to 5 lug, if i can find a whole rearend that i can just bolt, if someone has one they want to get rid of reasonable price, on a budget, if someone can help me out just let me know

    Does anyone know the size of the stock 2001 V6 rear end? I am thinking about getting gears and possibly t-lok but am unsure about what to get and what size.
