Do i need it?

Sooooooo as of about an hour ago I figured out that my 245's will fit my 18x9 rims sooooooo I didn't need to save up for new tires, sooo I'm on to the next step for my stang! 4.10 gears with tlok now should I get the rear end Installation and Bearing Kit - 7.5in (79-85 V8; 86-10 V6)? Do I need it? My stang only has 45k miles sooo idk ifistill need it or not? Let me know what you all think!

Re: Do i need it?

I bought the FRPP tlock and pulled some 3.73s out of a ford ranger... I did not buy the rebuild kit either, but I was just lucky enough to have perfectly good bearings and such in my stock rear to re-use... I strongly suggest buying the kit to be safe... and don't forget to buy friction modifier!
