I'm not sure what your asking. Getting a set of new gears is a must. Are you talking about rebuilding it with an overhaul kit, or beefier axles. Or getting a LSD?

Well it pulls on two wheels because if the 8.8 swap I just wanna know if putting in a new T-lok will help out? I'm looking at the Ford Racing T-lok and the rear end came with only 55k on it

If anything just get the carbon fiber clutch pack rebuild kit for the 8.8, make it nice and strong/durable

You don't need the 8.8 professionally installed, it's a direct bolt on swap from the original 7.5

Idk what that person did but if you're lookin to save some money save the maintenance cost and try it yourself trust me it's doable with the right tools and time

Jack and jack stands, air tools help out a lot, but it's doable with all your sae/metric wrench sets, sockets and breaker bars and ratchets. Some pb cleaner to soak those rusted on nuts.
