Ford Racing 7.5" T Lok

Does anybody know where I can find one. All the smaller companies that still have them on their sites don't have any in stock. And of course none of the bigger sites have them either

They had a 3.73 option as well.

Not worth to build 7.5 for the Money get the 8.8 brotha. I went on a hunt for that, when I found some they wanted 400-550 and plus labor wasn't worth the 7.5. I ended up losing hope for the ford racing 7.5 and got a 2013 8.8 w/ 3.73 from the Shelby factory.

Based on my install quotes doing the 7.5" will save me some and I'll never see more than my full bolt ons now so breaking it isn't as big of a concern

It really doesn't take much to break the 7.5. I put the tlok, 3.37's (supposedly indestructible Richmond gears that had a whine due to the cut), and the LPW girdle to protect everything.

A CAI, tune, and a set of drag radials was all I needed to break it before the end of the summer.

When I pulled it to swap the 8.8 in the car it ended up that was cheaper than what I had spent on the tlok, gears, and installation costs trying to build the 7.5.

Yeah but I'll never run slicks...that's a big part of breaking rear ends when those tires grab so hard

What did y'all pay for your 8.8"s?

And also I'm looking to get steeper gears too and putting in an 8.8" with 3.31s will cost more cause I'll have to get gears and install kit and whatnot

You can pick up an 8.8 with the tlok and 3.31's already installed from the factory, why would it cost you more? It is a direct swap with the gear set you want.

I was able to pick up a take off rear end for $750 with 3.55's - unfortunately the supplier has gone out of business or I would connect you with them. I brokered a lot of rear ends on another forum through that supplier with everything from 2.73 gears through 3.73. But if you check car-part.com for your area you should find some at reasonable prices. Sometimes they come up on craigslist even.

If you get a rear end from a 2005-10 GT you will need to swap the pinion flange with the cobra flange so your driveshaft will mount up. The flange is only about $25 - but it is tricky to swap (I used a shop to swap it for me because I wanted someone with experience to handle that).

The 2011+ Mustangs all have 8.8" rear ends. The pinion flange should be correct for the 2005-10 V6 with no flange swap and direct fit, but I know of at least one person who picked up a rear end from Roush that was supposedly a 2012 but he had to swap the flange.

Cause I'm wanting 3.73 gears so adding that to the cost of the rear end and if I get the rear end off eBay then shipping is $200+.....just weighing all my options

You can get a take off with 3.73. They aren't as common but they are available. Just takes some searching.

I just did a quick search on car-part.com here in Michigan and found a rear end from a 2013, with 3.73 gears, listed as a "new take off" for $1,000. And one off a 2010 for $695. Lots of 3.55 set ups.

Oem we've got 3.31 so you tell us how she feels. I went from 7.5 w/ 3.31 to 8.8 w/ 3.73 soo wouldn't know. 8.8 made to last you'll be happy with it. Can always find deals on any gears you want for future. Keep me posted when you swap and how she feels.

Yeah I mean with full bolt-ons it's a fun car! Wouldn't say fast haha but definitely fun and decently quick! I'll probably go for the 8.8", I plan to make a drag car out of it after college when I get a new stang so that'll save money in the long run.
