Yes, taking it off is fairly simple, and basic tools will work
I'm not saying it's going to be a quick job, but fairly simple
You should definitely plan to at least have your car out of commission for one day, if you're doing it your self, That is if you're like me, where I start one thing, get sick of working on it, move to another part on my car for a couple hours, and then go back and finish it

Well it depends how much of the rear end your cousin is giving you, I.E. struts,tires, arms
If its a 100% complete rear end, you can just take everything seen on the rear out and jack the new rear up into the car, bolts will most likely match, as long as your not putting say a 09 posi in a 01 v6

What I am saying Is to forget the GT rear end for one second, Your present 7.75 rear end, can have new gears put into it, you can even buy the gears to turn into a Positrac, it's not like the 8.8, but if you don't horseplay every time you drive your Mustang, you can get away with this, this set up will cost you approximately $300-$400 tops
All you do is drain your rear and, put the new gears then, refill your fluids, and drive it with a posi in your 7.75 present rear end
But, if you're already getting AGT rear end for free, you might as well use that, just a lot more work Then changing the gears and your present one

Hey, I hear you, I'd rather spend my time then my money too, I don't blame you if you have a GT rear end, deff use it
We actually did the gears in my 7.75 for a little while before I switched to posi, now if you haven't been around posis your whole life, you won't tell the difference between the two, but I am 18, and have been around cars my whole life, and if you have and you know these feelings, there is a slight difference, but not much
The point though, is if you don't want to tear everything out of your rear end, you do have the option to spend a little money and end with the same result
Like I said though, if you're just going to do the swap, plan for at least one day to have a different car, because your Mustang will be out of action

Haha yeah I hear you but I've only actually really been into cars since my senior year (two years ago) I'm graduated now. But since then I've learned a lot but no nothing about posis.. If you don't mind explaining what exactly it is?
And haha yeah ill probably just do it on Saturday so I can have all day. And won't have to worry about driving anywhere:p

In short, posi traction is short form for Positive Traction. It is also called Limited Slip Differential, but posi trac is a GM term. Posi is a differential that applies power to both wheels (mostly in high performance cars) and senses when one wheel starts spinning, so it reduces power to that wheel using a clutch mechanism (it's automatic). A common situation is when your turning, the power is reduced to the inside wheel so that you can turn, otherwise the car would be very difficult to turn. Differentials that apply the same power to both wheels at all times are call Lockers, and used mainly in drag racing cars. All non performance and sub compact cars use open wheel, which means power only goes to one wheel at all times.

This probably sums it up fairly well

just taking out the rear end is very easy, lower control arms, upper control arms, shock mounts, then brake lines BAM thats about it. If you have ABS undo those electrical connections.
