Bearing kit makes it way easier. Not much point to 4.10 without post, so I'd get a t-lock as well.

Just FYI, that's a lot of stress on the little 7.5" rear, I know a lot of tragic stories. Some do fine with it, I'd suggest swapping in an already set up 8.8

Re: 4.10 gears

By the time you buy the gears, tlok, and pay for installation you will be around what it would cost you for a take off 8.8.

I tried to build the 7.5 with 3.73's, tlok, and the LPW girdle. It cost me more than the 8.8 I finally swapped in after breaking the "built" 7.5 with just a CAI, tune, and pair of drag radials.

how much would a built 8.8 cost with install? ive heard anywhere from 1500 and up which is a lot more than the 170 for the gears plus 250-300 for install... trying to keep this inexpensive

I said this exact same thing once! Lol

You have to find a junkyard Shelby to make it work.

I was able to pick up a new take off 8.8 with 3.55 gears for $450. There isn't a lot of building up to do with the 8.8, it will be plenty strong as is. Finding one with 4.10's will be the challenge because the most you can get from the factory is 3.73.

Angelofrat are you just doing gears, no tlok? Setting up a 4.10 on the 7.5 rear end is a little tricky from what I've been told. Most are going to whine and the smaller rear end has a lot to do with it.

i cant find an 8.8 rear end for a decent price anywhere, newtakeoff has one but its for 1000 which is way more than i want to spend

Id keep looking and save up. Itll be a lot more expensive if you blow up the 7.5. Or go 3.73. Still plenty torquey,
