Cheapest I've ran across used were $80 so I think you got a good deal if the teeth all look good.
You'll still have to buy the other parts ( Crush Sleeve,etc...) as you don't want to use those parts used because of the way they wear. I still have to get my 3:73's. I wish I could find them for $30... I'd jump on it quick.

This is possibly the worst gear install advice I've heard in a long time. And it isn't impossible to crush a new one as the whole point of a crush sleeve is to crush it to where it needs to be for THAT specific set of gears.

As to the original question, yes those gears look fine.

Hey Guys...I'm just going by what the shop told me when I was getting Install Quotes.
Maybe they're lying...I don't really know. They are in business to make money & it seems everyone try's to sell you things you don't really have to have. But if you don't know any better you kind of count on them for correct advice.
So....Would or Should a Crush Sleeve be Replaced ? What parts should be replaced, if any ?
I want to know this too so I don't get taken for a ride when I get my gears done.

Get the gear install kit from AM.

Ford Racing Mustang Ring & Pinion Installation Kit - 8.8in Solid Rear M-4210-C3 (86-04 V8) - Free Shipping

You need that plus gears (which they sell as combo kits for about $250). Then whatever the installation is. If a shop tells you you can re-use the crush sleeve or just use the exact same shims in the same order find a different shop. Or have fun with a clunk in your rear end every time you take off and that's a best case scenario from a shop that does a hack install.

That sounds like what the shops have told me so I guess they're being honest.

Yeah gears are one of the biggest rip off installs there are. Apparently, if you are local to eastern PA you can actually take your car to American Muscle for the install. Not sure where you are located. The guy who did my mount/balance has a fox and said they charge around $400-$450 for the gears/kit/install out the door which is screaming good if true. I need to actually call and ask because I'm really not that far from them.

Wow, that's right in the price range all the shops around here want which I thought might be high ...but really haven't found anything cheaper. I guess considering the price of the parts plus the labor $450 isn't all that bad. Still going to keep getting quotes till I'm ready for the gears. Need to get that motor in 1st. Starting that on the 3rd so I'll probably do gears in August. I believe you said to do the gears before dyno tuning.

Is that $450 for parts AND labor because if it is you are not going to find any better. Make damn sure you get a warranty in writing though and if you get any clunking or weird noises at all even slight, go back immediately and demand they fix their **** up. Diff fluid is not cheap and neither is paying someone to pull it all apart because some tech in a hurry didn't set the lash correctly or properly do the crush sleeve.

Yeah, that's parts & Labor. There's like 20 places in this area that do rear end gears. Probably more...but these are the ones advertising it constantly. Maybe it's in that price range because there's so much competition. I'll use Fox Body Performance since all they do is Hot Rod Mustangs. That place is huge...takes up 1/2 a block. It's about 45 minutes from me so not too far away.

Yeah dude that's a great price. Around here they charge $500-$600 just for the install (except maybe AM).
