Recommended gear oil

So, i finally pieced my entire kit to rebuild the rear end. I purchased the 4.10 gears (ford racing) after reading plenty of threads recommending these. I already purchased the ford racing ring & pinion. What else do i need and which gear oil is recommended?

Thanks!

If you still have the original Trac-loc differential, you may want to consider replacing the clutches. They are relatively inexpensive, and easy to replace during a gear swap.

Now, after looking online. I seen that there is one with the carbon disc, and one without. I'm assuming the carbon disc ones would be better. Why? I need to be educated lol. Also, is this something i can do myself? I asked a shop just to get a guesstimate as to how much i would be charged to have someone swap my gears. I was quoted $200. Is that a lot?

$200.00 is a great price, usually $300 - 450 range for install. Redline has good gear oil if you can find it. Motul has oil as well, friction modifier is needed as well.

Nice! I might just end up getting it done at that shop then. But, what gear oil should i purchase? And how many quarts. I seen on LMR they have two quarts and the friction modifier together for $50.

I'm running Valvoline synthetic 75W140. No need for a friction modifier it's made for limited slips and trac locks.

Get 3. It took a little over 2 when I rebuilt my rear end.

I find it here in local privately owned auto parts stores.
The two local Mustang shops Have it/Use it.
I find it on ebay.

Here is an Amsoil locator LINK: https://allsynoil.com/Amsoil-Motor-O...l-Dealers.html

The carbon disc will grip better and may, or may not, last longer than the standard OEM style clutches. It depends on how they are used, or abused, that will largely determine longevity.
Ford used the carbon clutches in the Cobras.
