Do 3.73 or 4.10 gears, limited slip diff, a tuner, and control arms help too

Best bang for your buck that's about 500 is a set of 3.73 gears or 4.10s. Installation and parts is around 500

What's the difference between the 2? And can they be installed alone or do I need a time or other parts to go with it?

For gears LSD install kit fluid and labor you're looking at close to $900 or more if you buy all new.. You can get away cheaper by doing the 8.8 swap and just putting gears in it.

As for tuners, my recommendation is Ortiz Performance, his tunes aren't as conservative as AM's lol

3.73 is for automatics that want to eventually add turbo or supercharge their rides. 4.10s are for manuals from what I've seen posted on here. Plus if its a DD then you'll run higher RPMs with them both but defiantly more with the 4.10s.

And yes you'll need the part that sets your speedometer correctly since it gets way of with new gears. I'm not an expert so if any of this info isn't right someone correct me :p

So if automatic go with 3.73s and manual go with 4.10s

If you do not do gears the Windstar upper is a good choice.

No, setting the backlash is not something you should try and do yourself without any experience. You can cause some real damage and chew up your new gears.
