My rear end went out!!

So my rear end went out. Pretty sure its just the stock on the 2000 v6. I seen posts on people swapping out rear ends and since I gotta spend money might aswell make it better right. So what can I do? Do I just get a rear end out of a gt or what. Any info will help since its already at my family's shop

Putting in a gt rear end will make it a 8.8 instead of a 7.5 as well as better brakes and limited slip diff that said you can go out and buy a brand new super rear end but the gt is around 350 plus cleaning and painting and the new rear end for a well built put together one is 1500 so it's all up to how deep your wallet goes

A 28 spline 8.8" rearend from a 99-04 GT is your best bet. The rear brakes are the same so there's no gain there, however the rearend itself is larger and as Everett said you get the limited slip, or traction lok to be manufacturer specific.
This will get you better traction from a dig and eliminate those embarrassing one wheel burnouts

The v8 rearends also have quad shocks which can be transferred into your v6, the bolt holes are in the frame.

Unless you know the exact mileage of the car donating the rear and how it's been driven I'd plan on rebuilding the rear. Rebuild kits are available at vendors like American Muscle etc. You may also want to upgrade gears since you'll have the diff. cracked open. Keep in mind changing from the stock 3.27's and going to a taller ratio will throw your speedometer off slightly and will require calibration for it to be correct.

Finally, you can use a 94-98 8.8" rear but it will be ~.5" narrower on each side which would require hubcentric wheel spacers to push the wheels out so they don't look so tucked in.

I put a 98 gt rearend in my 01v6 for $150. I put 1.5" hubcentric spacers on each side, perfect. Rear wheel lip is flush with fender...
