I have an 08 V6 with NO ABS and no traction control. :eek:hknow (Auto Transmission). So I was wondering can I still get 4:10 gears with the Ford Racing 7.5" 28 spline limited slip diff. ? Im a complete noob to gears. Im just not sure if thats all i need for the setup. Im gonna have a shop install them for me. I was thinking of getting these from American Muscle.

4.10 Gears for 7.5 Rear end at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping!

Ford Racing 7.5" 28 Spline Traction - LOK Limited Slip Differential at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping!

Is that all i need to have 4:10 gears? Or do i also have to buy this ..

yes, you can. you may also want to look at a "new take off" complete rear end.

i wouldn't go with motive tho, i bought them and as many times as i had the shop re check them, there will always be a whine because of the way they cut their gears, go with FFRP, they are a little more but worth it

i dont have abs or tc and i installed motive 3.73`s and t lok in my 7.5. ive have never had any whine at all, and ya, it was worth the money without those features. sometimes i wish i would have went with the 4.10`s, but its my dd and more than anything i like having the limited slip posi. i also bought my stuff through am and ya, get the install kit. it comes with all the bearings and races along with some other stuff you need. :)

And what kind of "feel" do you get? What is the difference when you add them?

Same here. No abs/trac with FRPP 4.10s and T-Lock. How's it respond? White smoke from the rear tires at 1/4 throttle that's how!!!!!

I'm reading that a lot of you guys use Ford Racing gears. However, I cannot seem to find FRPP gears for a 7.5" rear end online. Did you upgrade to the 8.8"?

Personally, I'd rather just upgrade my gears, because I know I'll never need the 8.8" strength. If someone has a link to where I can find 4.10 FRPP 7.5" gears, if they exist, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Yep. Just get the gears man. FYI, get the install kit AND T-Lock. Gears are a 3 component part in my eyes. I'm N/A and these have held up to everything I've ever thrown at 'em. Key is a reputable shop. Can't emphasize that enough :D
