I would leave the gears to a pro. But the rear you can install yourself. You can use the gears that came with the rear or buy your choice of gears, have it professionally installed/rebuilt and you can install the rear on your car yourself

Yeah, setting the backlash on the gears isn't really for the novice home mechanic. Have a pro do it, the rest is easy.

Is it better? to use the gears with the rear or upgrade?

A few ways, take the diff apart, it might say on the cover, or the easiest is to turn a rear wheel once and see how many times the driveshaft spins

He is exactly right. Just remember it will be easier to have gears installed while the rear end is out. So you might want to make up your mind before you put it in your car.

Do you have to change anything with the driveshaft? I'm pretty sure the yoke or something is different

I didn't change anything on my 1995 V6. A 2001 GT rear end bolted right up.
