Re: only one wheel spinning on my 1996 mustang gt

Sounds like you need to have your tlok rebuilt. You can buy a kit from Ford or Americanmuscle.com. You will probably need to have a shop do the rebuild. From what I've heard they aren"t something you can usually do with out heavy mechanic experience.

sounds like the clutches are going out and the Tlok needs to be rebuilt. its not a huge deal to do, not sure on price of the clutches but probably 200-300 for labor~ or should be at least.

Just buy an install kit when you buy the tlok rebuild kit.

Re: only one wheel spinning on my 1996 mustang gt

tlok replacment or removal/replacment of clutches and a gear change requires basically the same amount of effort. The extra effort is in shimming and setting the rear end fully (removal of drive shaft and pinion gear) etc so its not THAT much more work~ you should be able to save some on labor if you do both at the same time.
