$$$$ How Much For Gears$$$$

How much is it suppose to cost someone to install gears and do a bearing rebuild in a Mustang?

Usually between 350-650. This is a job that you get what you pay for. If you buy gears get ford racing, they are much easier to set depths so they dont make noise.

I do them myself as well and always use ford racing gears. The v6s cost more to do that way because they arent posi from factory like a gt so you need a whole diff setup plus gears. The diff setup isnt cheap

the trick is doing them RIGHT the first time, many fail to get that done and have to replace/redo it all over again. Find a quality shop that charges a fair rate and get a warranty against whine etc (most just blame it on being a "race car" if something goes wrong.... even if its their fault.

Or backlash not being right.



I bought the parts separate from the install and got a bearing rebuild... Cost $565 overall. And no noise whatsoever. Definitely worth the price to do it right.

I think my fluid is low, as it appears mine haven't been changed(tag still in place, bolts look untouched) but still whines. Although maybe they have been changed still. Speedo is very close to dead on.

I got 4.10s in my '02 GT and I absolutely love them. And I just run 2k @ 65mph. Don't fear the gear!

Oh, and city driving is easy. First gear is imaginary though. Haha

I don't fear the 4.10 I just don't want to be driving on the highway getting worse mileage than in town. In town I could see 4.10's being nice.

For me to get the gears installed with the trac lock rebulid kit was $238 after taxes. It is much cheaper if you can find a shop that is strictly mustangs.

My tag says 3.27, I'm going to mark the tire and driveshaft and count rotations. Though I know we have diff engines but now I'm real curious.. I'm showing about 67 @ 2k and 80 @ almost 2500

My stock 3.27 gear ran about 1700-1800@75. Lol.
