finished my rear end swap

after almost 2 weeks on jackstands, i finally was able to finish installing my car's new rear end. (i misused two lower control arm bolts and so i had to get a new set... THANKS goes to Suprman!!!)

anyway, i put the stock 7.5 back in w/ the open differential, and 2.73 gears. i swapped an 8.8 w/ 4.10s to someone on 3.8mustang.

the car feels kinda different. it may be my conveter still in there, that is making it seem faster than it should be. also, i cant tell if my speedo is correct (yes, i swapped out the speedogears while i was putting both rears in) and when i floor it, my whole car kinda jerks forward and to the left a bit. darn 1-wheel-drive. too much power going to that one wheel only and it feels as if when my shift kit kicks in, it moves the car to the left some

need a bit more driving on it to see if the speedo reading is accurate again or not, but hopefully it is.

actually not much. its weird cause the converter is taking over the lower end. i mean i can feel a difference, but it still shifts all with one wheel. so that takes some getting used to

I need to get a converter bad. But my gears whine and I need to get that fixed first.
