Re: I wanna go with gears

Well years ago you could get the Ford Racing gears for the 7.5" rear.

Nowadays I don't know if you can find them or if they even make them for the 7.5" anymore...Richmond and Motive seem to be the popular brands for v6s now. I've heard of motives grinding and making whining noises but I believe that's due to improper install. Any gear that's not set right such as lash on the crush sleeve or interfering cross shaft pin will grind and make noises.

Did you look the 4.10 gears for the 7.5 on fordracing.com?

Re: I wanna go with gears

Oh wow, well there they are...nevermind then...I'd go with those. Better construction and worth it imo for the extra money. If you do need someone to install you could have a ford stealership do it since it's a Ford part and have half a chance regarding warranty/installation insurance.

They have Ford 3.73 & 4.10 sets. If you purchase the bearing/rebuild kit, it's made by Motive.

They last depending on abuse around 100k or more and switching to 8.8 doesn't mean you never need them to rebuild but they handle more power

Re: I wanna go with gears

You want to get your hands on a set of Ford Racing gears over a set from Richmond or Motive. stangmods.com has all the 7.5 axle choices you need. e-mail them, they will do what ever it takes to get you what you want at the best price. They'll work with you. After install is complete, only be satisfied with an absolutely whine free/noise free results, nothing less than perfect. Your local Mustang shop will probably agree with reducing any risk factors by going with Ford gears. Good luck, you'll love the speed bursts and tight gear range, your exhaust tone will wake up considerably also. Have fun!!
