let the pros do the gear installs.
I'd never do it, just thought someone with the balls to do it might want some guidance.
It would take some BIG BALLS for me to EVER try it...............hey Im a puss when it comes to gears. But for anyone who wants to try it, its a good link :thumb:
i installed my own gears its alot easier when you have your rear end out. but a note on the side is that if you use ford motorsports gears you can reuse your own shims and it makes it a lot easier
iv built probably 20 rears ...mostly 8.8 some 9inch....only once when using ford gears did the stock shims not work for me.
I would love to attempt the install, but I wouldn't be able to afford wasting all that amsoil synthetic gear fluid Seriously thought, I am currently building up the rearend and I will be sending the rearend out to get the gears done.
you guys must be good in the garage
yeah i do everything myself except for auto trannys....never had the balls to rebuild one of them
well you know the saying...........wont know until you try
Having the shop do mine on sat-sun for a cool $205 for labor and parts (shims, gasket, seals) I cannot wait, going for 2.73 sloths to 4:10's, it should be an entirely different beast.
damn right it will be, my cobra had the 327's stock and when my 430's were put in a couple weeks ago............ :dancing6: :banana: :dancing6: :banana: ALL GOOD!
I can't take any more of these 2.73's, it makes my car a sloth. Maybe they would be good if I had 2000+hp.
The only fun thing about 273's is you can down shift to second running 60mph on the freeway.
rear ends are easy to rebuild. and why would any one want a 273 gear unless they are top speeding a car
yea that will help top end wont it
Why in the world did ford put the 2.73 gear in the auto's? assholes. So yea, doing the rear end this week, and in addition to the gears, I decided to get a new diff. Probably going with the Torsen brand and if not that then the Auburn because summitracing is out of Eatons for a while.
I think gas milage was one of the bigges reasons
Which gets back to the "who buys a mustang and worries about gas mileage" comment I saw on corral a few days ago.
unless your getting a 6 cyl, there is no point in getting one and trying to get a good return on your gas milage.
