Rear end question

I'm gonna be doing an axle swap in a 2002 GT with 3.73 gears, I'm not changing the housing just the right axle. Is there anything I should know to help make this go smooth?

Re: Rear end question

if you are just swapping in the complete rear end its rather straight forward other than worrying about ABS and brake lines.

Its a GREAT opportunity to replace those crappy lower control arms, uppers in stock form are ok (they can cause bind if you replace them with many aftermarket ones along with lowers)

Re: Rear end question

It should be pretty straight foreward.

Re: Rear end question
