I'm waiting. Looking for new gears and exhaust. Delivery to Canada really gobbles up what we save though.

Yeah tell me about it I'm on the fence with 4.10 or 4.30....

The ford racing ones are so cheap too bad they don't make 4.30 from American muscle the 4.10 are 129$ and the 4.30 are 229....

I get zero whine from my ford racing gears. I installed them using the same shim amounts as factory. Perfect mesh and zero noise

Did you install them yourself? Or did a shop install them? If a shop did then ask them to check your runout and wear pattern

+1 good idea.I would also do that more sooner than later.if they are misaligned then they are going to wear unevenly.once they do that they may not be able to get them right.

I just did my first gear install about 5 months ago.it wasn't to bad as long as u take ur time and double triple check everything.it turned out good though.I got the frpp kit and master bearing install kit combo from lrs for like 220 after forum discount.it had everything.I did not have to buy one thing else.

+1 I've done about 3, as long as you take your time it should be fairly easy

Also the only other thing is you'll have to have access to a few specialty tools like micrometer,dial indicator, and bearing puller/separator.
