Rear End

I was trying to show off the other day and lay down some rubber. But, only one tire spun causing me to look like an idiot. This has happened before on occasion. What is the reasoning behind this? I thought My GT had a limited slip rear end in her. Is this normal or is there something wrong with my rear end ?

Re: Rear End

Thanks for the info. I was thinking about changing the rear end with some 4.10's anyway might as well change the whole thing while I got it out

You won't regret 4.10 gears. I want then myself.

I might do the 3.73s.

Re: Rear End

yea the clutches are getting worn or you dont have the right fluid in there or to much friction modifier etc etc. It happens with old age.

Re: Rear End

lalayla,

I had 4.10's in one of my 05 GT's and I took them out, and put 3.55's back in... They whined and I didn't like the way it made first gear feel, almost truck like... And it didn't feel that much quicker..

3.73's might be fun though....

Re: Rear End

there isnt that much difference in 4.10 to 3.73 rpm increase wise, I think for the street with a normal ratio trans 3.73 is good, heck the 2011's come with them as an option but they do have a lower final drive in 6th but not by much.

I have a 00 GT with 4.10s. One of the best mods I did. If the gears whine then fire your mechanic because he didn't shim them correctly. In fifth gear at 65 mph I'm tacking about 2400 rpm. And man do they rip when you get on it. I'm running 13.7s with basic bolt-ons and the gears. If you plan on a power adder eventually then i would go with 3.73s. You will run out of gear really fast with 4.10s and a blower

I would just go with 4:30 gear from ford and be done . People will tell you that they have gone from this gear up to this gear and always seam to go up more . If you are planing on adding alot of power to car I would go ahead and just do the 4:30. 4.10 gears vs 4:30 gears is night and day

Re: Rear End

remember that the size of your tire depending on height can hurt or help your rear end ratio I have 3.73 and they were great with the stock 245/45/17 tires the I moved up to the 275/40/17 and it slowed me in the quarter mile but my hwy gas mileage piced back up

Re: Rear End

Gear whine is common with 4.10's, research it...
