mods

so i was planning on getting some 3.73s but its gonna be 360 for parts from american muscle and 400 for labor its hard to come up with it in college should i go with like cai udp strut tower brace lowering and stuff like that since i can get a couple hundred dollars in a month just for mods or should i save to get the gears?

Re: mods

lowering and wheels/tire would be first on my list with exhaust close behind

gears are great but the installs can be a pain. Gears are 200 bucks and a tlok is about 200 so do them together.

Re: mods

depends on what you are into. If you want the overall look than the parts you listed should be first. If your into speed than the gears are gonna be the best for you, so you will feel them a whole lot more

Re: mods

It's a good thing to do since your already in their. but it's not something that you can't live without. the stock locker will hold up fine, untill you start putting down big power to the ground and start going to the drag strip a lot

Re: mods

not really. and cheap gears arn't a good thing cause they tend to whine. stay away from richmond gears. use Motive or Ford racing brand gears
