Rear gears

I just wanted to know what tools will be needed if i wanted to do a 3.73 gear install. I own a 2000 gt and want to do the install myself with some friends. Any suggestions would be helpful too, thanks

Torque wrench, the backlash tool (micrometer), sockets, press if your installing new bearings. I'm sure that's it but if I missed something someone else will chime in. But thats pretty much it far as the gears itself. GL

In/lb torque wrench, ft/lb torque wrench, micrometer as black99snake said, along with the press of you're doing new bearings, and just the basic hand tools

It all depends on what you want from ur car. Stock gives you better highway MPG but lower low-end torque. If you want better acceleration due to higher low-end torque, but still want some ok highway MPG or if you do a lot of city driving 3.73 are great. 3.73 is what I use and I'm happy with it.

Yes! 3.73 is a good ratio for every day drivers
