it is an lsd, but it does not use clutches.

The Detroit Truetrac performs like an open differential under normal driving conditions and automatically transfers torque to the wheel with better traction when ground conditions call for it. Because of the proven helical gear design, maintenance is not required as there are no clutches, cones or friction plates to wear out and no friction modifier to add.

Whether you’re cruising on the street, competing at the strip, or driving to work the Detroit Truetrac is the performance choice limited slip differential.

When you can buy a 8.8 for 800 dollars, cheaper if you have a pre-99, I fail to see why bother spending the money on a 7.5.... just me though

because this 7.5 diff is probobly stronger than a stock 8.8 ford t-lok, unless were talking 31 spline.

I have yet to see a properly maintained 8.8 break with 300rwhp.

There are very little v6 mustangs running around pushing 300+rwhp.

Which is why I advise if your going to be laying down a grand for a rear end, just go ahead and get the 8.8

im sorry i may have misinformed you. if i was going to upgrade my rear end I would buy a complete 8.8 rear end. I would have the TLOK unit in it rebuilt and the gears installed (which ever ratio you want) professionally with a warranty IN WRITING that covers whining and breaking for X time (bolts come loose and such and can ruin the rear end if its not built correctly so a warranty is very useful)

it may cost a bit, but in the end you will have a rear end that will take a beating.

Re: any 3.37 gears or 8.8 rear for sale

if your set on an 8.8 you can get one with gears for about 1000.
i would just stick with a true trac though.

The cost for the detroit, gears and instal will not be $1,000 unless you're getting had on the instal. The cost for the 8.8 will be AT LEAST that much, and wont be as strong, STOCK, as the built 7.5.

359 LSD (If that is the correct price)
200 Gears
300 Install atleast

is 859 dollars

You can take your brand new 359 diff and 200 gears to the cheapest place you can find if you want.

Just don't expect them to last.

and like I have said before.... show me a 300rwhp 3.8 Mustang that has broke a 8.8 rear

What I am saying is that they are both about the same price. (For 99+ now, if your pre-99 your INSANE to beef up your 7.5) I prefer to go with the 8.8 run it and more than likely never see the t-lok break on me than spend my money on a 7.5 rear end.

amybe he wants to run a sticky tire. bu i doubt his axels will hold up in that case,
dude the point s that the 8.8 can handle more power than the 7.5. sure the 7.5 detroit lsd can handle more power than an 8.8 ford 28 spline t-lok, but if you are running serious tires with serious power, the 8.8 is the way to go 31 spline baby!

Actually considering how many stangs are not modded at all I would also say there are very few GT's running around with 300+ RWHP

Re: any 3.37 gears or 8.8 rear for sale

Ok here is the situation as I see it. As we b!tch about what is better there are some facts we need to realize.

NOTHING I repeat NOTHING is more important to the health and longivity of a Differential than proper maintenance. As a person who has worked on the differentials the 7.5 might be smaller but it by no means is it weak or inferior. Most failures are poor maintenance or faulty setup at installation. I am amazed at lack of attention people have towards certain areas of their cars.

People seem to not pay attention to the differentials or tranny when it comes to changing fluids. Everyone changes the engine oil but for the life of me I am shocked at the lack of attention to Brake systems or power steering systems.

So the truth is if you buy a V6 that has had poor maintenance or no maintenance at all on the tranny or differentials dont expect it to survive if you start taking it to the track. This is also true with 8.8's

So in a nutshell if you are into drag racing and spend a lot of time on the track using slicks it would be advised to invest into a 8.8 or even a Ford 9". But if you just a modding nut and like the occasional boulevard blast a 7.5 should give you years of good service as long as you do the proper maintenance.
