If you have a 5 speed then you're good to go, bolts right in. Might need a new shift knob and you'll have to reuse the original shifter boot.

Some say yes, some say no... I didn't waist my money on it. I used a silicone adhesive that makes it water tight, same price as the gasket but I already had it. Just to be safe, you should get the gasket.

Hurst is a great shifter, steeda is pretty good. The tri axe is one of their better shifters though. The cheaper you go, the easier they break

Its a solid shifter, just not a brand id swear by. Some ppl love them and others will say they're s*** lol I swear by Hurst because they've been around for forever, I've never had one break, and it gives your new school ride an old school feel. Kinda like Mickey Thompson tires lol that shifter is the same price as the Hurst, its really all about what you like

I have a 98v6 and with a short throw shifter, dual exhaust, and rear end gears, you'll feel like you have a brand new car. Smooth shifts and great acceleration.

4.10s are more suited for automatics. I'd go 3.73s

It's not needed, but that wouldnt hurt. Your best bet is to save up to get a rear out of a gt or cobra. That way you have both wheels spinning when you take off compared to just 1.

Yeah the v6 has the 7.5 rear and GTs have the 8.8, bolts right in.

Alright man, you've been a lot of help, answered a lot of my questions lol, so what if I got a gt rear end with trac lok and 3.73s already in it, could I just bolt it right up to my v6 with no speedo problems or anything?

With my auto I put in 4.10s and the auburn LSD wth the stock read and I have good power dstrib to both wheels... So I'm sure with 3.73s with an LSD you could get power to both as well I'm skeptical of getting used rears cuz of their high mileage but that's just me

---------- Post added at 12:40 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:39 AM ----------

You're gonna need a tuner to do that the speedo would be off .. Mine was off about 15-20 mph

I'm just weighing my options right now, a good gear job I think is like 600 with parts maybe more, but I'm getting my car repainted next week and getting the hurst shifter too so that's bout 4000$+ so the rear end is later on more like a summer project

That's what this forum is for, to answer any and all questions. If you get all of that and install it, you will have Speedo problems because of the different gear ratio but it won't mess anything up. You can get the calibrator for $100 I think. All and all with the rear, new tlok, gears, shifter, and calibrator, your looking at $1100 if you can do everything yourself.

Staying black with either matte or satin black accents like I have on the hood but also put that on the rear deck lid and at the front of the roush bumper in the middle

Auburn is definitely the best brand out there, in my opinion.

But ya most would probably charge 600 my mechanic/buddy spent 10 hours on it rear ends aren't a joke... Adjusting for backlash is annoying and rather difficult

No lie accelerating is really fun now I don't even care about all the gas I burn... And doing burn outs where both wheels will smoke is amazing... It was like I had bought a new car... Night and day difference in accel

All you need to do is get the 3.73 ford racing gears off am and get the bearings kit with it then get the auburn LSD... It's our only choice now since the discontinued the ford racing one... It's a bit pricey but built a little better and rated to withstand more hp

---------- Post added at 12:56 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:55 AM ----------

Also since you just hit 50 posts hit up an am rep for a 6% off offer code on all your orders

Private message one of their representatives on here they have American muscle in their names... And it helps with accel off the line to match up with their higher gearing I keep up with 4v gts and beat older gts (pre-1999)
