7.5 Rearend in my 2006 mustang!

I have a 7.5 stock rearend, and I need to know if it would better for me to stay with the 7.5 and just upgrade the carrier to a 7.5 Track-lock, or just try and find a complete 8.8 from a GT?
I have a V6 stock and it is an everyday driver.

I am new at this!
Thanks for any help.

It all depends. If you plan to take it to the drag strip I would go 8.8 or if you plan on doing any power adders. Otherwise a 7.5 would be fine for daily use.

Re: 7.5 Rearend in my 2006 mustang!

New Take Off has a good deal on a 8.8 rear that will fit our V6ers.

2005-2009 Mustang 8.8" Rear Axle Assembly 3.73:1Ratio w/ABS w/Trac-Loc Pinion Flange For Mustang V6

Now the 7.5 is good for minimal power but when you add bigger power gains like forced induction you should upgrade to the 8.8. If forced induction and higher horse power isnt you cup of tea get T-lok for you 7.5

Thanks! It will be and everyday driver for me but I just looking to do a little upgrading and not put to much green into the car. Just kinda want it to look good and sound good for just being a V6,
I am looking to up-grade the wheels to 18X9 and get both back wheels to turn at the same time and give it dual exh. That should do it.

Thanks again for all the help with ideas.
