1990 Mustang one wheel spinning issue?

Only one wheel spins and I want two. Any ways to do that short of buying a new rear end

Re: 1990 foxbody rear end lock

If you already have the 8.8 Traction Lock rear end, it probably needs to be rebuilt.

Yup, if you have a GT/LX with the 5.0 engine it is a T-lock.

How much would it cost me to have it rebuilt or would I be better off puling it off another body

A rebuild kit is pretty cheap. Your also gonna want to put all new bearing in the rear while its out. What will cost is the labor if your not able to do the work yourself. The whole carrier will need reset. Part are probably 1-200$. But labor could be anywhere from 500-1000$ depending.

Even if you've never done it, I'd say grab a chitons manual and give it a go. I don't think it's really hard, just a little tedious

And if all else fails, removing the rear end takes maybe an hour. So if u screw it up you can just take it in. But I don't think you will. I've never rebuilt mine per say, but I've had the whole thig apart and it's pretty easy to assemble.

I think I'm having the same issues. I know I have a posi rear but when I burn out only my right tire leaves a mark. The rebuild kits on am are cheap so I'm gonna pick one up. Never took a rear apart but my friends done a few before so I figured with him and my haynes manual I should be good

Just replaced my locker. The clutches broke on mine and bought one from a buddy for 50. Installed it and what a difference. Pretty sure your clutches are smoked. Cheapest clutch set I found was 70. Good luck

I recently bought another fox shell for 100. Did a rear end swap and it is limited slip and I love it. I also have a rear main seale leak so gotta fix that an replace my clutch. Have a stage 2 in it now. To put in the same is like $330. Insane
